Ethics is Personal

Initial Text: Though ethics involves our professional relationship to clients and our society at large, ethical challenges and how we resolve them have a big impact on how we feel about ourselves, our peers, and our career. With this fact in mind, I want you to think about this study in ethics as “your course.” What do you want from this course? How do you hope to benefit from a deeper understanding of ethics? (I hope that as the course progresses, you will review these thoughts and raise questions to be sure that your concerns are being met, but also that your discussion here helps me to understand and look for opportunities to respond to your individual concerns.)

ACCT 439 Week 7 You Decide 1 Latest

Scenario Summary

Brian Anderson has just completed his college education and has taken his first job. He has joined a professional accounting firm and has been assigned to the first engagement. Prior to starting this assignment, he was given a two-week introductory course on the firm, its clients, its policies and procedures to be followed. He was told that in all things if he has a question concerning the assignment, he should ask the senior/manager on the job and follow their directions. He was also instructed to keep complete and accurate records as to the time worked and the areas completed on the assignment for accurate completion of the budget and charging the client for work performed. However, while completing his first assignment, he discovered that some of the things are different or contradictory to what was described in the introductory course. He is faced with a difficult ethical dilemma.

The Dilemma

Brian is the newly assigned staff accountant on the first assignment. While on the assignment, he interacts with the other staff accountants on the assignment. During the discussions with them and with your manager, he was informed that he would be expected to work through some lunches and possibly past the normal quitting time. He was also informed that although this would be considered to be overtime, he was not expected to record the time worked or seek reimbursement for the time worked. This action was in direct contrast to what he was told to do during the introductory course. What should he do, and why?

Key Players

maleBusinesswomanBrian Anderson, Staff accountant on the first assignment with the accounting firm

“This is a very difficult situation. If I do not record my time, then I will not be in compliance with the company rules and policies. If I record the time, then I will not be following the directions and expectations of Sarah, my manager. What should I do?”

Female Businesswoman 2Sarah Reef, Manager for Brian on the first assignment

“My goal is to bring the assignment in on budget and on time. If Brian does not work the extra hours, then it will cause problems on the assignment. However, If the extra hours are charged, then I will be over budget and over costs. This will reflect badly on me and I might report Brian’s lack of being able to follow orders and not being a team player.

” https://devry.equella.ecollege.com/file/1244dea0-6fca-4e84-bfe9-cfc21a552500/4/images–femaleBusinesswoman4.jpgAnna Palakov, Fellow staff accountant who informed Brian about the overtime rules

“Here is the situation: If Brian refuses to work the extra time, I will have to work his hours. And if Brian informs the Partner of Sarah’s expectations, people will all know that Sarah is not in compliance with the firm’s policy. This is bad for everybody.”

Scenario Summary

In business, not all ethical decisions are easy or black and white. We each have our own set of ethical guidelines that we use, based on our backgrounds, teachings, and experience. This set of ethical principles is not necessarily the same for each of us. To help us in making the correct ethical decisions in the workplace, the various business and professional organizations have developed a set of codes of conduct to assist us in this endeavor. However, in actuality, sometimes we do not have an appropriate guideline from which to formulate our response or decision. The following scenario is designed to demonstrate this problem, as you will be asked to make, and understand, a decision for which there may not necessarily be an ethical solution. However, you will have to make a decision based on the best information available and possibly the least of the worst possible solutions.

You are Ken Meyor. One of your friend, Tom Kewank, has just returned from the war. He used to be a member of the armed services. During your discussions with Tom, you discovered that he was a sniper on loan to another government agency. His assignments were to track down leaders of the opposing forces and from a great distance, assassinate them and then escape back to his own area of control. Even though Tom enjoyed his assignments (working alone in a hostile environment, making life or death decisions, exercising great skill and the adrenaline rush of a successful kill), he is having a hard time reemerging himself back into civilian life in the United States because he does not get the same enjoyment from the stateside assignments or positions that he is qualified to fulfill. He has asked you what he should do.

You need to advise Tom on taking a course in life that will allow him to feel comfortable in his environment and still retain the feeling of having a meaningful life and doing something that will give him the same feeling of accomplishment and success. However, you come to the conclusion that what Tom wants is the feeling of the successful assignment, but within the boundaries of the United States, there is nothing that can come close to giving him the sense of fulfillment that he got in the theater of the war.

Your Role / Assignment

Tom Kewan – the ex-soldier, approximately 23 year of age.

Key Players

Tom is 23 years old. He has a high school education and no college background. He has no real vocational skills upon which to draw a decent job. He has served several tours in the war zone because he enjoyed the camaraderie, the thrill of a successful mission and having to draw upon his skills and knowledge in order to successfully enter into a hostile area and egress back into his own area. “I have a hard time reentering back to the civilized society in the United States. However, due to a wound suffered in my last assignment, I am also unable to reenter the military. I really want to feel the rush I had enjoyed in the completion of a successful mission, but I do not know how achieve it under the rules and guidelines I must follow in our society.”

Ken Meyor – Approximately 25 years of age.

Ken has served in the military. His assignment was an infantry rifleman and he also served one tour in the war zone. Although he was in the infantry, he has not knowingly shot and killed another human being. Ken needs to make suggestions to Tom as to what to do or where to go in order to maintain Tom’s sense of fulfillment.
