In groups of 3 please answer the following question:
A friend asked for your advice. He said that he worked for a public company in the financial department. He knows that the company violated labor wage laws and under-reported wages to save money on required payments for workers’ compensation insurance. He believes they may have committed other financial improprieties but doesn’t have direct knowledge. He feels he helped perpetrated a fraud and may have himself engaged in unlawful conduct. He feels particularly aggrieved because he says he always is very careful to complete his tax returns in a completely honest manner. He wants to know if he ethically should report this information to either the internal hotline or to governmental authorities. He is concerned that he would be identified as the source of the report and be fired.
