Chap 3-  ETHICS  ETHICAL BEHAVIOR:  That which is considered “right” or “good” in the context of a  predominant moral code.  Embezzling from one’s employer is unethical behavior, as is  lying to customers. Treating employees and customers fairly, honestly, and with dignity  constitutes ethical behavior.  MORAL/ETHICAL INTENSITY:  the impact(s) of an individual’s (or a group’s or an  organization’s) (un)ethical behavior on other involved parties; the greater the moral  intensity, the “bigger a deal” the behavior is.  Taking home a pack of pencils from the  office and taking home furniture are both examples of stealing, and laughing at one’s  boss’s corny jokes and concealing harmful product defects from prospective customers  are both examples of lying. However, the latter example within each pair involves an  issue of greater moral intensity.
