You are managing an IT infrastructure project. Your architect has done an excellent job and you want to reward him. You don't have a budget for bonuses, but you know he wants to take an extra day off next month, but he can't because he doesn't have any more vacation days. He has a few sick days, but your company policy does not allow him to use them for vacations. What should you do?
A. Give him permission to take the extra day off, because you should reward him for his effort B. Tell him to just call in sick that day and you won t tell anyone it was a planned vacation C. Ask your manager for approval to give him the day off D. Don t give him the day off
Don\ t give him the day off-professinal & social responsibility - ethicsthe correct answer is that you should not give him the day off. the question clearly states that giving him the day off would violate company policy. telling him to call in sick would be even worse, because now youre adding dishonesty to the corporate policy violation. choice c might sound ok, but remember as a project manager you should have a lot of authority (unless otherwise stated in the question) and you should not go running to your manager for approval. plus the question clearly states that using the sick day for a vacation day is a violation of company policy and even your manager cannot violate company policy (yes, even if hes the ceo he should still follow company policy).
