Review the behaviors that raise ethical questions in the workplace, listed in Figure 4.1 I in Ch.
4 (p. 58) in Supervision: Key Link to Productivity (8th ed.).
Post your response to one of these questions:
Which three areas do you believe to be most prevalent?
Which three areas have the greatest consequence in the workplace?
Justify your answers.
The three areas are: 1) divulging confidential information; 2) dating someone who works for
you; 3) pilfering company materials and supplies.
Divulging Confidential Information
Protecting clients’ personal information has been taking place in small businesses and
major corporations. Business owners realize how important it is to ensure the privacy and
security of clients’ personal information (i.e. social security numbers). A disclosure or loss of
confidential information makes companies liable to the point of even facing expensive lawsuits.
I recently have heard on the news that one Countrywide employee was selling clients’
information. Breaches like these can ruin companies’ reputations and decrease clients’
confidence toward the company, to the point clients do not want to do business with those
companies anymore.

Inter-office romantic relationships can have a positive and negative impact on a
company’s business. For instance, suppose the relationship between two supervisors is healthy
and working out well; in that case, the relationship may benefit the company as the supervisors

contrast, suppose that the relationship is not working out and ended badly; in this case, the
supervisors’ personal problems may end up interfering with the company’s business. As a result,
the company’s productivity may decrease while tension and stress between employees may
increase.
Pilfering Company Materials and Supplies
Finding a loyal employee who has strong ethic is the key to succeed in any business. It was less
than one year ago when one of my coworkers (a property supervisor) found an accountant
stealing from the company. More specifically, the accountant was posting charges for one of our
buildings (i.e. painting works and supplies), cutting checks, misleading the owner to sign them
and cashing them himself. He was able to steal a few thousand dollars with his unethical
behavior before being caught by the property supervisor.
