The paper reviews a situation in which the writer was confronted with an ethical dilemma involving the dispensation of company cash. The paper examines how repairs needed to be made on a machine in the warehouse; however, the funds necessary to pay for this repair could not be released until the owner of the business had an opportunity to assess the situation. The writer, succumbing to peer pressure, allowed funds to be dispensed to pay for repairs prior to notifying the proprietor of the business. The paper examines the moral and ethical dimensions of the situation.

From the Paper:

"Ethical issues abound in the modern-day workplace. Because of strict government regulation, because the space within which we work is rarely our own (unless we work from home) and because of today's heightened sensibilities, ethical issues in the workplace are more prevalent than ever before. In the following paper, this writer will discuss an incident that took place while an employee with a local business. The matter involved money and, while it was perhaps not a significant issue to most, it did spark an ethical dilemma that remains vivid to this very day. With that in mind, the following paper will discuss the incident, its ethical connotations, its consequences and what was learned from it. As will shortly become apparent, any situation which demands that you compromise personal principle is a very serious one, indeed."
