Coffeepot Chatter: The Ethics and Compliance Hotline

Maria:  Harry, I was at a party during the holidays where a woman was bragging about the great gift she received from one of her company’s vendors – cruise tickets valuing several hundred dollars. How can she accept that?
Harry: Is the question ‘can she’ or ‘should she’?
Maria: Hmm, maybe her company allows that. However, If I were in that situation the first words out of my mouth would be, “I simply can’t accept this.”
