© 2010 Cengage Learning 53 What Do You Think? Do you agree that companies should communicate any and all information that may pertain to employees? Would there ever be a time where it would be more ethical to hold back information from employees? If you were an employee in the insurance company, what would you consider to be the ethical step to take: inform employees of the possibilities of layoffs or keep that information confidential until the company is absolutely sure layoffs might happen? What would be the best, most ethical, channel to use when communicating bad news such as layoffs? Do you think it is unethical not to tell your boss that you are looking for another job? What are the situations in which employees have an ethical obligation to provide this information to their managers or supervisors?
