Dilemma

So - did you ever have an ethical dilemma at work?

Yeah - I'm in the middle of one. I'm doing the ethical thing and will be telling my boss of the situation and my recommendation (he's on vacation until Tuesday). Problem is there is No Way the resolution of this issue won't cost the company money. This issue has the potential for becoming one of those things-to-never-do cases you read about in HR textbooks.

Worst case scenario for me? I could lose my job.

At the least, I think I will quickly become A Very Unpopular Person.

Best case scenario? My boss shakes my hand, looks me in the eye and thanks me for bringing this issue to the companies attention and then we work side by side to deal with the fall-out.

Here's hoping.

thank guys for the comments. I can't tell you how upset I am. Unfortunately I can only talk in broad generalities on the blog since if a nosy lawyer/employee/reporter ever connected my blog and my company, I could make things worse. I'll tell you what I can as I can. For those with my phone number, feel free to call.

Thanks again for the quick comments. The confirmation that we had a problem and the dread of talking to my boss has put me in a bit of a tailspin. So I'm cooking. Grilled salmon, rice pilaf, sourdough roll, broccoli and a lucious white wine. I'm ready for company if you're hungry! =-)

Thanks Heidi!

I'm worried about you. Don't tell us on-line what happened. In fact, don't put it in an e-mail either. It's too easy to be sued, even though you are in the right.

Thanks TLP. Quite a world we live in, eh?!
