In my post Responsibilities in the Employer-Employee Relationship I asserted, “Employees also have moral obligations, and they go beyond giving a full day’s work for a full day’s pay. Loyalty goes both ways. Employees have moral duties to the organization, co-workers, and customers. When an employee, without any notice to an employer, secretly looks for a new job, often covering up interviewing time with deceptions or lies, is the conduct any less untrustworthy than the acts of an employer who is secretly advertising for and interviewing people for the employee’s job? I think both are improper.”
This generated a lot of comment and substantial disagreement. What do you think?
