The Prompt

Select on of these scenarios for this module:

Situation 1:

You have discovered an error made by your department which may result in rejects and rework at a later point in the production process. The error is small, but you cannot determine what the effects on the final product might be. If you report the error, your department will look bad, and you might even lose part of your profit-sharing for the quarter. What should you do?

Situation 2:

One of your co-workers, who is also a personal friend, has been going through a number of health and personal problems and has used up all her sick time. You have tried to be a good listener and to help out when you can. Now your co-worker has asked you to punch in for her and cover for her during a medical appointment. What should you do?
