Joshua Lang Business and Professional Ethics Professor Klimas Case Study January 27, 2017 The case against Mr. Burrows does not surprise me as something that a person did. I was more surprised that he held a senior position in a finance company. I would have assumed if he was cheating on his train ticket and going further than he had paid for, he probably did not make much money and was just trying to get by. That would not have made it more ok, but would have at least made more sense to me. Why would a person who makes what is likely a decent wage, feel the need to jilt the transit authorities of London out of the fee they were entitled to? After reading the case study, I feel that Mr. Burrows probably does not have much, if any remorse about not paying the total fare he should have been paying each day. He said he accepted full responsibility, but I think if he had not been caught, he would still be cheating the system. If Mr. Burrows was a senior person at the bank I used, and I found out that he was dodging train fares, I would think twice about doing business with that bank. Likely, I would take my banking somewhere else. I think it was smart that he lost his position because may people would feel the same way I do and they could lose a lot of business and that could cost jobs, which would be completely unfair to the other employees.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
