Case 1-3 Unintended Consequences
Veronica Betterman, a fifth-year accounting major at Anywhere University, wakes up in a cold sweat. Like many accounting majors, Veronica did an internship in public accounting the previous spring resulting in a full-time job offer with Anywhere CPAs to start after she graduates this spring which she readily accepted.
Now in her fifth and final year, Veronica decided she wanted to see what other job opportunities might be out there. So, she went through her university’s career fair just two weeks before and was invited to participate in six on campus interviews. Five of those potential employers then invited her to their offices for another round of interviews. She received full-time job offers from four of the five and has yet to hear from the last. Her deadline for deciding on the first of those offers is two days away and she does not know what to do.
While everyone tells her that she should be excited, she is not. She is scared. Worried she may make the wrong decision, she seeks advice from her academic advisor. Her advisor listens to Veronica’s dilemma and to Veronica’s surprise the advisor tells her that she should never have gone through the career fair, done any of those recent interviews, or be contemplating anything other than starting at the firm she interned with.
The advisor stated that she has made a commitment with that company that she has to honor. To do otherwise would be a breach of ethics and is not only an indication of a lack of integrity on Veronica’s part, but could cause irreparable harm to the university. He requests that Veronica meet with him again the next day after she prepares a list of all the potential consequences that could happen (to her, the internship program, the other employers, the university, other students) should she take a job with one of the other potential employers.
Veronica gets out of bed, opens up her laptop, and starts working on the list of consequences.

Case 2-1 A Team Player? (a GVV case)
Barbara is working on the audit of a client with a group of five other staff-level employees. After the inventory audit was completed, Diane, a member of the group, asks to meet with the other employees. She points out that she now realizes a deficiency exists in the client’s inventory system whereby a small number of items were double counted. The amounts are relatively minor and the rest of the inventory observation went smoothly. Barbara suggests to Diane that they bring the matter to Jessica, the senior in charge of the engagement. Diane does not want to do it because she is the one responsible for the oversight. Three of the other four staff members agree with Diane. Haley is the only one, along with Barbara, who wants to inform Jessica.
After an extended discussion of the matter, the group votes and
