• Confidential issues: workplace
matters that should be kept private
• Implied confidentiality: an obligation
to not share information with individuals
with whom the business is of no
concern
• If you are uncertain about sharing
information, check with your boss

WHEN OTHERS ARE NOT ETHICAL
Accusing Others of Wrongdoing
• Document facts and evidence
• You have three choices:
– Alert outside officials if the offense is illegal and
extreme
– If the offense is not illegal and extreme and is
accepted by management, accept management’s
decision
– If the offense is not illegal and extreme and is
accepted by management, yet you are bothered,
decide whether you want to continue working for the
company
