ethics

posted by .

A coworker calls you at 9 a.m. at work and asks for a favor. He is having trouble this morning and will be an hour late for work. He explains that he has already been late for work twice this month and that a third time will cost him four hours of pay. He asks you to stop by his cubicle, turn his computer on, and place some papers on his desk so that it appears that he is "in." You have worked on some small projects with this coworker and gone to lunch together. He seems nice enough and does his share of the work, but you are not sure what you tell him. What would you do?
