She is currently working in the United States on a temporary work visa and has come into a situation that calls into play her ethics and moral character. Valarie has discovered an ethical shortcoming on the part of her manager who is clearly violating company policy by taking kickbacks, under the name of his private company from his fragrance suppliers. The manager feels that he can act in this manner due to his position in the department and his willingness to conduit monies through his private company. This puts Valerie in an uncertain situation, in that by reporting it immediately, there is a chance that there may be retaliation against her by her current employer and forced to leave the country due to her citizenship status. Valerie confides in her boyfriend who she knows she can trust, because this particular information was consuming at her and she felt the need to tell someone. The advice from her boyfriend was not to disclose the information to anyone at the present time so that she didn’t risk her job or schooling opportunities in the United States. Valerie demonstrates the expedient principle of devotion. Through waiting to tell anyone until she got her schooling completed or found another job, she took in opinion the low road.
