  • Large offices, special parking privileges
  • Special retirement and health benefits for
    executives?
  • Special executive severance policies (golden
    parachutes)

Ethical Perspectives of Supervisory Pay Decisions
  • Should squeaky wheels be rewarded? (those who
    complain the loudest)
  • Should employees who are not liked or do not get
    along with others, yet in other respects perform
    effectively, be under-rewarded?
  • Should a manager provide a counter-offer to an
    employee with an employment offer with a higher
    level of pay, if it exceeds that of other
    employees in the same job?

7
Ethical Perspectives of Supervisory Pay Decisions
  • Should you provide a higher salary offer to hire
    a job applicant who is the best negotiator?
  • Should a supervisor fight harder for a pay raise
    for an employee who is perceived as critical to
    the unit?

8
Ethical Perspectives on Employee Conduct
involving pay
  • Should an employee embellish his/her resume
    (w.r.t. experience, job skills, etc.) in order to
    receive a higher pay offer in the market?
  • It it Ethical to solicit job offers from other
    employers when your intentions are to use them as
    bargaining chips to receive a better pay offer
    from your current employer?
  • If your intention is to find a better job, is it
    ethical to allow your current employer to make a
    counterbid to retain your services with the
    firm?

Ethical Pay Practices and the Law
  • Is it Ethical to Deny Contract employees the
    right to have Benefits (health insurance, stock
    options, 401(k) plans, etc.) that permanent
    employees receive?
  • Is it Ethical to use non-compete agreements that
    restrict exiting employees rights to practice
    their skills at another firm?
  • Is it Ethical to re-price stock options for key
    executives but not extend it to other employees
    or shareholders?
