Ethical Dilemmas

In this scenario an employee overhears someone sharing commercially sensitive information. The DVD features a fictional company and cast of characters in an exchange which assumes the viewer is a recent graduate-level recruit, confronted with a range of tasks and information.

They are an unwitting witness to what appears to be an incident of commercial espionage within an already difficult professional environment. The incident is written with sufficient ambiguity that uncertainty is created in the mind of the participant regarding the best course of action to take, prompting debate in class and further reflection upon what constitutes professional and ethical behaviour.
