This series features 13 articles from Brad Agle, Aaron Miller and Bill O’Rourke,
co-authors of The Business Ethics Field Guide. Each article focuses on a common
work dilemma, while providing real life examples and insightful solutions. For more
information, please refer to the cover story in the November/December 2018 issue.
How many times have you sensed that something must be wrong, but you weren’t
entirely sure? This dilemma is not about how you stop something; it’s about how
you discover if there is something that should be stopped. Of course, the way you
investigate matters. Looking into potential wrongdoing often appears to be an
outright accusation, so tact is required.
