Bad Business Ethics or Acceptable Promotional Perks?

September 30, 2009

http://www.scu.edu/ethics/dialogue/candc/cases/emotional-perks.html

This article is about a girl who just graduated with a communication major, and took a job in the publicity department of a radio station.  After she started working there she found out that the station would request products from local companies in which they would give away in exchange for good publicity from the station. However, the problem was that the station officials would overestimate the amount of products that would be given out and employees would keep the surplus. This went unnoticed by the companies because they could not monitor the stations full airtime.

This situation is obviously unethical due the fact that the radio station was not upholding to their end of the bargain. They were only worried about their own happiness and took no consideration of the loss incurred by the small businesses.
