Report

This case is about an employee called Mark knowing some information relating about an accident caused by the company. This issue here is what should Mark do? There are four main options that Mark has as to what decision he can make. He can either say nothing, tell the press, tell Lee to pay the bill, or anonymously tell the press. Each option will be discussed, and how different people and shareholder involved in this case will be affected in each scenario.

Say Nothing

If Mark says nothing, it will have a positive effect on himself, because he will be able to keep his job, and carry on working well for the company. It will also have a positive effect on Lee, as his company will carry on as usual, and there would be no problems for him. For Jim, it wouldn't really affect him, as there would be no change. This would be the same for Dave, as nothing has changed for him. Shareholders would also have a positive effect, or wouldn’t really be affected, as the company will resume as usual, with no change in their share prices. Employees of the company would have a slight positive effect as they will be able to keep their jobs. Farmers on the other hand would be negatively affected, as they will not know of this issue, and may be injured if they own a shut off valve.
