Ratting on Your Colleagues Should the Code Require It?
Abstract:The current SAF Code of Ethics requires members to report colleagues who violate the code, but the policy is not reflected in practice. A look at several other professional organizations reveals a similar disconnect between policy and practice. We need to acknowledge that our position differs from our practice, consider revising and relocating the reporting requirement, and encourage members to personally confront violators before reporting them.
