Ahmed Kasadi has just been told the companys senior human resources officer would like to speak with him on a conference call. Ahmed is the Afghanistan in-country manager for a large US based corporation, and he recently reported his concerns about company employees bribing government officials to get a $500 million dollar contract. Ahmed has been with the company for 10 years and knows how seriously the company takes its ethics policy. More importantly, Ahmeds family was born in this region and he had developed a local reputation for supporting economic development. The company had engaged in bribery activities in the past that resulted in millions of dollars in fines from the US government. When he took over his current job, he had every employee in the country retrained on the ethics policy, and held monthly status updates on ethics activities. Ahmed believed that the current bribery activity was not only against the law, and contradicted the ethics policy, but if the contract was awarded and the bribery was later revealed, the company would face serious financial and goodwill losses.
