How do you handle conflicts of interest? Have you ever been offered a kickback or asked for a "voluntary" contribution to a cause? Are there cases where we can – and should – act against an important principle to achieve an even-more-important benefit? To tweet or not to tweet?
concepts such as rights and obligations, conflict of interest, professionalism and mentoring, confidentiality, whistleblowing, bribery, fraud, and corruption, and ethical communication with the public in a social media world are discussed in practical and approachable terms.
Organised by the canons of the ASCE Code of Ethics, this book is intended for practitioners, consultants, government engineers, engineering educators, and students in all engineering disciplines.
