Branch Inc.

  • Losing ground to competitors from shoddy production in recent years due to substance abuse

  • Engineers-Andy(drinking problem) and John(ethics problems)

  • Position in quality control open from Jack Curtis being demoted due to drinking on the job


What should john do

What Should John Do?

Talk with Andy about his drinking- John feels Andy’s added pressures from the promotion to quality control may interfere with Andy’s

production on the new job.

Keep in mind they have worked together for years-he may lose a friend if Andy doesn’t want to change

Point out to him that substance abuse may be the cause for shoddy production

Part III section 5 states “Engineers shall not be influenced in their professional duties by conflicting interests


Code of ethics for engineers section iii 7

II Talk to Harvey Hillman Plant Manager

  • Invites John to lunch to discuss the prospects of Andy’s promotion giving John the chance to talk about how he feels about drinking on the job

  • Since Harvey moved Jack Curtis out of quality control because Jack was drinking it almost seems like John must tell the truth about the way drinking affects the job performance


Iii two concerns of the union

III Two Concerns of the Union

  • Mandatory random drug testing for their non-professional workforce and mandatory drug testing for all new workers

  • 1) Drugs are illegal-The union believes the testing infringes on the privacy of the workers

  • 2) Exempting professionals from drug testing is discriminatory. That is a double standard.

  • The basic purpose of Alcohol in the Workplace was to gauge the effect on business of 24-hour licensing. While it found that neither employers nor employees thought the problem of workplace leglessness had got worse as a result, it does note an "ongoing cultural problem in Britain".

  • The places where this cultural problem is most ongoing is London and eastern England, where 26 per cent of employees admitted to drinking while on duty. These were closely followed by the south west, notching up a liver-bashing 24 per cent. The north east and north west were identified as not giving it 110 per cent with the lowest pissed-at-my-post 'fess-up rate.
