Dear Mr. Ethics, I saw one of my project foremen using the company pick-up truck to haul cut fire wood. My foreman said he has a side firewood cutting and deliver business. We are allowed to use company trucks for personal use but not on side businesses. The side businesses contemplated by the company are industry related like home remodeling, painting, and handyman services. He is a great worker and his family sure can use the extra money.

Dear Mr. Ethics, I am going to leave my current employer for a cross town rival. Before I give my two (2) week notice I want to take my paid two (2) week vacation. I am pretty sure my company will let me go once I give my notice because of the competition between the two (2) companies. I have about four (4) weeks before I need to start my new job. I told my new employer my plan and he is fine with it. He would like me to look over a couple of jobs when on vacation so I can hit the floor running.

Dear Mr. Ethics, One of our competitors recently let go its regional president of the West Coast construction office. The reason for the change is reported to be because the president and the company board of directors did not see eye to eye on future development. My boss thinks this is a good opportunity for us to tell potential clients that the president was let go because the company is in financial trouble and its long term viability of the company is not good.
