Luke s Ethical Dilemma Of An Adult Entertainment Store On...

Luke’s ethical dilemma Fact Luke has been assigned by his company, ABC to work on a project that involves the construction of an adult entertainment store on a land purchased by ABC and close to a residential neighborhood where Luke’s brother, Owen lives. Plans for building this structure will have to be made public in a month and as soon as the public knows of it, the property value of houses in that area could significantly drop. Luke’s brother, Owen owns a house in that neighborhood and has been considering selling â€Å"it† but might wait a few more years to see if the property value will go up more to maximize profit. He is unaware of the plan by ABC to build an adult entertainment store in his neighborhood. Issue As an employee of ABC and the person in charge of the upcoming project, Luke is obligated by his company and by policy to not leak the information to anybody outside of the company. However, as a close brother of Owen, he also feels the need to have loyalty for his brother and let him know ahead of time of the plan by ABC, so the brother can make a decision on whether to sell the property sooner, rather than later. Although informing his brother might be the right thing to do, Luke is still obligated to keep ABC’s information confidential. Luke has to decide between being honest and loyal to his brother or loyal to ABC.
