This is an impactful exercise for any level of management to administer. It can lead to productive discussions about personal ethics/values decisions. It can be as simple or complex as the moderator chooses. It is disguised as a negotiation, so the ethical issues are completely camouflaged by the parties’ negotiation tactics. The fact sheet, the employee’s facts, and the employer’s facts are attached. The user is encouraged to copy them (or modify them) for the user’s specific needs.

Keywords: Ethical exercise, Management administered, Duty in negotiation, Ethics, Standards, U.S. Ethical standards, U.S. Business standards
