Scenario: A Truth vs. Loyalty Dilemma
You are the Corporate Responsibility Officer at a large multi-national internet search-engine provider headquartered in the U.S. This morning your company received a request from a foreign government to provide personal data on some users in that country. If you provide the data you will break the ethical standards of your parent company, by breaking privacy commitments, and the ‘offenders’ may be arrested. But if you do not, you will break the law in that foreign country and also put some of your employees there at risk of imprisonment. Your CEO has called you to an emergency meeting to figure out how to respond to the foreign government. The corporate code of conduct is on your desk. What light — if any — does it shed? What should you do?
