General Rules to avoid unethical behavior

 

General Rules

Use of the following general rules  may help avoid charges of unethical
behavior:

1. If you think it might be wrong,  it is.

2. Don’t get yourself into a situation that “tempts to dishonor.”

3. Is there anyone who gives you something who doesn’t want
or expect something in return,  except your mother? (And you
can’t be sure about her.)

4. People don’t give elected officials or government employees
gifts because they like them, but because they want something
– at best, it is a sense of obligation.

5. Can you accept a gift that does not influence you?
