F 2.  Leaders who are focused on their own goals are less likely to lose their way when it comes to ethics. T 3.  Galleon Hedge Fund was involved in insider trading. T 4.  Reality TV shows enhance the real life scenarios. T 5.  The failure to disclose that your college degree was withheld because of outstanding parking fines and violations is unethical. F 6.  Taking information from a confidential file accidentally left on your desk is not unethical. F 7.  If I discovered that I unintentionally violated a federal environmental regulation, I should  just wait and see if anything happens before taking any action. F 8.  If my supervisor asked me to cover for him by lying about his whereabouts, I should agree to do it but remind him that I can't make it a habit. T 9.  Your company's policy on company vehicles is that no family members may use them or ride in them. It would be unethical to use a company car to drive you and your spouse to a movie. T 10. You are taking a graduate level course in management that will help you in performing your duties at work. Each week you must submit case analyses to your professor. Using work time to complete the analyses would be unethical.  Business Ethics, 8e Jennings T 11. With respect to #10, using your work computer and paper to complete the case analyses would be unethical. T 12. Attending a class on company time would be unethical. F 13. A supplier has just been awarded a large contract by your company. As an employee in purchasing, you were largely responsible for awarding that supplier the contract. The supplier's sales representative has just called and would like to take you to lunch to thank you for the support. Going to lunch with the sale representative does not present any ethical problems. F 14. You are a building inspector for the county. A friend of yours is a plumbing contractor. Under county regulations, all steps in plumbing construction from the initial dig to the final installation of sink and bathroom fixtures requires an inspection sign-off. Your plumbing contractor friend has just called and wants to take you to dinner for your birthday at a five-star restaurant. Because you are friends anyway, the dinner presents no ethical problems.  Business Ethics, 8e Jennings T 15. Your company has several outdated computers sitting in a storage closet that no one is using. You have taken one home and set it up for personal use. This is unethical conduct. T 16. You work for a school district as a facilities coordinator. You drive to the various schools in the district and supervise construction and remodeling and assess various building needs. When you are traveling around to the various schools, you use a district vehicle that is clearly marked as such. One day you stop at the country club and have lunch before heading to the next school since the country club is on the way. You also stop at the bank drive-thru teller to do some personal banking business. Both the lunch and the bank stop are ethical breaches. F 17. Your supervisor has told you that he wants to get rid of Jane. Jane is a Hispanic female co-worker who is very bright and capable and hardworking. Your supervisor has asked you to document everything Jane does and says that will help build a case for termination. You should do as your supervisor tells you. T 18. Alice is a co-worker who is going through a divorce and has two small children. Alice's husband is not paying the child support the temporary court order requires. As a result,  Alice is broke until she can get her court hearing. Alice has been able, through diverting checks returned to the company, to take about $2200 from the company to temporarily help her cover her bills, as she has explained to you. You must report Alice's embezzlement. T 19. The mayor owns property next to one of the proposed sites for the city's new baseball stadium. The mayor has a conflict of interest and should not vote on the location of the stadium when the city council takes action on the site. F 20. Although you are not part of your company's engineering group, you have discovered a major flaw in the company's new paper-thin solar calculator. The calculator adds when the subtract button is pressed if there are more than three figures to the right of the decimal point. Since it is not your area, you should do and say nothing. F 21. With respect to #20, it is not necessary for the company to take any action to correct the problem or refund money for those who already own the new calculator. T 22. Alice is a secretary in your department. Alice is also a member of the American Guild of Organists. Alice has been placed in charge of the Guild's national convention. Each time you pass by Alice's desk or go to her to have some work done, you notice she is on the phone discussing or working on the convention. Alice's work on the convention during work hours is an ethical violation. F 23. Your supervisor has had a calendar with pictures of naked women on the inside panel of his desk for several months. A secretary spotted the calendar and commented to your supervisor that it was not appropriate for an office. Your supervisor took down the calendar and has asked you to back him up if any complaints are filed. He has asked you to say that you never saw the calendar. It would not be unethical for you to do as your supervisor requests because he has removed the calendar. T 24. A newspaper reporter is interviewing you about your experiences in working for a member of Congress. You have indicated you have information about his private life but will not share it. The reporter responds, Tell me, just between you and me. You share the information and a quote from you on the private life of the member of Congress appears in the newspaper the next day. The reporter was unethical in violating a trust.  Business Ethics, 8e Jennings F 25. It would not be unethical for you to accept two employment offers in case one fell through. F 26. It would not be unethical to continue interviewing for positions after you have already accepted employment with a particular firm. T 27. You work for a construction firm that is submitting a bid for the construction of a new company headquarters building for Smithco. A friend you have known since high school works in Smithco's capital budgeting area and has full knowledge of all the bids from all firms. It would be unethical for your friend to share that information with you before you submitted your bid. T 28. With respect to #27, it would be unethical for you to hire your friend to get him to bring the information to your company. F 29. Your college of business is sponsoring a case competition. All teams must watch the other teams compete. The order of presentation is by luck of a draw. The team that is the last to present left during one of the presentations, went to the computer room and redid its PowerPoint slides and restructured its presentation based on what other teams had presented. This team has done nothing wrong. T 30. Albert Carr likens business to a poker game. F 31. Violation of company rules would not be considered an ethical violation. T 32.  Albert Carr believes that bluffing in business is justified because it is understood as part of the game of business. T 33.

F 35. Most ethical lapses are sudden and not foreseen. T 36. Ethical lapses involve gradual decision processes. T 37. Plato believed one cannot make ethical decisions without first developing virtue. T 38. A focus on the trappings of success causes leaders to lose their way. F 39. Increasing isolation is a part of leadership but does not affect ethical choices.
