The ethical issues in this case are employee theft, company resource abuse, conflict of interest, misuse of company’s confidential information, lying and intimidating behavior. Jack is misusing the company’s confidential information to do work for some clients outside of A&A. There is a conflict of interest because Jack represents A&A and has gained the trust of the company. Jacks’ ethical issues arise when he denied a promotion to a partner’s position in the firm, by stealing the company’s software. Jack is being dishonest because he is intentionally taking these ethical actions, which make him untrustworthy. Jack is revealing an intimidating behavior by making it clear to Carla that he is aware of her own practices, which also involve company resource abuse and Jack is trying to blackmail Carla.

If I were Jack, my first option is I continue to get some software of A&A. The consequences are it will help me to earn extra bills for my family.

The consequences are I can’t earn extra bills to start my own company. Sooner or later, I’ve been denied a partner’s position. 4.
