Introduction:

Shades of Grey: The Case of Folole Muliaga

There are instances, as in Week 3, in which an individual or corporation make obvious and purposive unethical (and often illegal)

choices at key decision points along the way. However, there are also times in which the situation is much less clear, and there is no

evidence that any of the decision-makers in the case were conscious that the choices they made involved moral choices as well. These

types of situations are often overlooked in an examination of ethics, but are quite important to review and consider. It is these

types of cases that we as managers and leaders may very well face.
