    Promoting vs. Enforcing Ethics o James graduated from college two years ago. Since then he has been employed by Brian & Associates, a small civil engineering firm. He has been assigned to design schools, overhead walkways between buildings, and other projects. For some time he has been concerned that he may not have the experience required for such assignments, and he has conveyed this concern to his employer, Charles Brian. Charles replied that he always checks James' work and has found it satisfactory.

    Promoting Ethics (cont’d) o Later James learns that in fact Charles does not always check his work, but places his seal on it and sends the designs to his clients. He further learns that Charles places his seal on many designs that he has not checked and even allows other engineers to use his seal and forge his signature.
