...complete on his own, Jacob is facing an ethical dilemma. Jacob and his colleague, Krystal, work for a small ad company in Topeka, Kansas. The five-year-old company is in need of a profit boost and sets out to score a government contract. Jacob’s personal struggle of an ill child prevents him from contributing fully to the project. Although, his colleague is responsible for the bulk of the work, Jacob is seen as the one responsible for the contract deal after delivering the presentation. The reward will certainly help with medical expenses, but Jacob realizes Krystal is more deserving of the reward than he is. By initially accepting the praise and recognition for a job well done, Jacob dismisses good ethics by using one of these rationales: 1.The behavior isn‘t really illegal or immoral. 2.The action is in everyone‘s best interests. 3.No one will find out what I‘ve done. 4.The company will condone my action and protect me (Exploring business, 2014). Jacob, realizing the issue, should examine his personal “code of ethics” and identify that he is facing an ethical dilemma. Although he is experiencing personal strife and could benefit greatly by accept a monetary reward, he should uphold integrity and act fairly to his coworkers and the business he represents. Employee’s Roles in Ethical Situations When faced with an ethical dilemma, an employee can find a suitable solution by following these steps: Define the problem, identify feasible options, assess the effect of each......
