If your supervisor asked you to do something that you knew was unethical - would you?
No I Wouldn't. I'd rather have my dignity over my job any day.
No because there's someone higher than your supervisor that you must account to for this unethical action - God.
No, I would not. My integrity is too important to me and if I can't trust myself, then who can I trust?
Definitely no. It does not matter if it is my supervisor or a co-worker.
As long as it's legal and not against the company's code of conduct, I'm sure it does not matter. Ethics are subjective.
As an individual we have the responsibility to act in act in the public interest and comply with the fundamental principles of integrity, objectivity, professional competence and due care, confidentiality and professional behaviour in our dealings. Therefore it is important to have ethics.
This happened to me (as a psychologist) and I held my integrity (thanks to my excellent grad-school instruction). I am thankful that I did this, by lawfully refusing to do it; although it created some tangible animosity eventually within a couple of months the director was fired. This company and most companies and organizations want no part of unethical conduct. I will admit that it is primarily to protect their bottom - line in such a litigation-oriented society...
When I was younger I actually had this happen to me. I was told to fire someone who plainly did not deserve it. I kept my dignity, But lost my job.
This is a nightmare scenario for me, now. I am the retiremnet fund and health insurance for my family. When I was young, I would have said, "Hell NO!" Now I would probably still say no, but it would be with the understanding of what I am risking. Anyone requiring me to do something unethical is asking for my attorney to make a call to the company and stir up trouble.
nope. I would rather be objective than to be subjective. Unethical acts is not acceptable no matter the situation at the time maybe. Be true to yourself at all time. Square your action with your fellow human.
I would refuse. Personal integrity above all else.
If we do not take the burden of ethics on in our everyday lives, who will? If we turn a blind eye we are condoning it. It is a burden, but to preserve the elements of humanity that I love it is worth taking on.
Of course not. If I don’t think something is correct I won’t do it even if he is my supervisor. It may create a lot of problems in my job. But I will give more priority to what my heart tells me to do

Oftentimes, many people often "have to do what they got to do" in order to succeed in the workplace. The picture is not pretty at all. These people do not care who they hurt psychologically in order to be successful. These people often bulldoze their way to...
