    Context

    Hooker (2011) submits that ethical behavior is rational behavior—and that it is good business. A popular approach to studying ethics relates rational behavior with rational self-interest. Hooker suggests that the consideration of others is rational not only because of self-interest but because to do otherwise is illogical and even self-contradictory. The idea is that ethics can make business sense.SHOW MORE

    • ASSESSMENT 4 SCENARIO

      Your maintenance chief calls to tell you that a new mechanic on his team has told him that the airline he just left has some potential safety and ethical issues. Specifically, the employee is claiming that his prior airline is conducting “pencil maintenance”; that is, they are writing things in their maintenance logs that do not actually get done. This includes required inspections, repairs, and standard replacement of parts. The new mechanic said he feels as if the airline is “an accident waiting to happen” and that he quit his job at the prior airline because he did not like their dangerous and unethical practices.Your maintenance chief is a staunch safety advocate, concerned for your customers, and he wants to know if you want him to do anything with this information. The airline in question has competed with your airline in the past, and likely you will share markets in the future. You do not know the CEO of the other airline well, but you do know the company has a reputation for being aggressive and competitive.As leader of your airline and as an advocate for safety in airlines, you have a decision to make. Is this a situation in which you will disclose what you have learned, or will you keep it to yourself? Do you have a responsibility to share this insight, or might this be a case of a disgruntled former employee that has little bearing on current activities? How might your actions, or inaction, reflect upon your own airline? How could this impact the industry overall? Would such an industry impact harm your airline?As you think about the employee’s report that his prior airline is doing pencil maintenance, consider the many actions you may take. You know that you can report the airline to the FAA, but this will not be anonymous—the other airline will know you made a report. Or you can report the airline to the Airline Association, but you cannot be sure that they will take any action, and your name could be given to the competitor. You could call the CEO of the other airline and tell him or her the situation; this would be a courteous thing to do. Or you could be anonymous and drop a tip to the local investigative reporter at a newspaper. On the other hand, you could just do nothing, deciding that this is either none of your business or likely to be the ranting of a disgruntled employee.
