Question and answer
Case Study: Daryl, the general supervisor of a marketing department of a mid-sized Midwestern corporation, is an ambitious young man. He is writing a book that he hopes will make a name for himself in the business community. Because the typing for the actual text is very time-consuming, Daryl is using the secretary he shares with two other managers, as well as some of his market research interns
to both do research and to type the book while they're at work. Because they are often busy doing his book, people from the other departments are finding they can't get their work-related business done. The secretary and interns feel they have to do what Daryl says because he is their direct supervisor. You are Daryl's peer in another department and you also have outside work you need to have typed. You're annoyed at Daryl's actions, but would rather not inform your boss (who is also Daryl's boss) about what's going on because you want to maintain a friendly working relationship with Daryl. Besides, you never know how the boss is going to react. Sometimes you begin to think that if Daryl can get away with using company equipment, personnel, and time for his personal projects why can't you? Discuss what you believe are the ethical issues in this situation, and determine how you would handle this situation. Answer these two questions in an essay format in at least 250-500 words: Identify what you consider to be potentially unethical. Why do you think it is not ethical? Using the three ethics check questions on pages 93-94 of the Understanding Business text, describe how you would handle this situation. For citation guidelines, please refer to the table in the APA Style section of the syllabus.

Weegy: The unethical part of the story is Daryl using the company's resources for his own benefit. [ [ This can harm the company in a sense that the time and activities that should have been done and that are very important is neglected because some employees are not having any company-related work done. this is a serious issue since this may affect the company's overall productivity. Daryl's friend should try to talk to him and explain his wrongdoings. he may also tell daryl what may happen if his boss finds out. ] ]

The thing that is very unethical is that the boss will fire you for not selling large toasters. That is absurd. You shouldn't threaten someone to do wrong things for your own good.
