Case Study 1
Introduction:
Considering case study 1, John who works as a database programmer was made to
choose an unethical way to complete a project as his manager was forcing him to complete
the project on time. John did not receive any help from his manager as he was dealing with
the complexities of the project for a long time. John took help from one of his co-worker who
once provided him a commercial software which had the capability of generation the exact
codes which were needed by him in this complicated assignment. John unethically used that
software to complete the project before the time which was assigned to him by his manager.
The ethical issue considering John in his statistical firm will be analysed based on the ACS
code of Ethics and ACS Code of Professional Conduct. White’s decision making dilemma
will also be considered while evaluating this case study.
ACS Code of Ethics applied in this case study are:
Honesty:John did not complete his project with honesty as he used unethical way to
complete it (Leicester 2016).
Competence:John did not work competently and diligently for his organisation.
Professionalism:The manager of this was not professional enough, he did not help
John to resolve the complexities associated with the project.
Five Clauses of ACS Code of Professional Conduct applied in this case study are:
Honesty:(A)Honest representation of knowledge and skills for delivering desired
product and services.
Professionalism:(A) Maintaining the integrity of ACS (B) Respect for the members
for each stakeholder of the associated organisation.
Professional Development:(A) Professional development considering both
personal and organizational development. (B) Development of the staff is also
necessary for the growth of a business organisation.
The primary of public interest:(A) The interest of the public should be given more
priority instead of personal and professional interests.
Competence:(A) Workers must be working diligently and competently for this
organisation (Johnson 2014).
Australian LegislationThe unethical decision taken by John can be associated with the Fair Work
Regulations Act of 2009 as it stated that fair work regulations should be maintained in all
working organisations (Capuano 2016). The Privacy Act of 1988 states that no individual can
use other individuals works this can be used to judge this unethical situation.
(A)Fair Work Regulations 2009
(B)Privacy ACT 1988

making dilemma. The three steps considering this case study are provided below:
