It May Be Legal… But Is It Ethical?

Thursday, October 28th, 2021

Michael Hoffner, Managing Partner and Janice Snyder, Partner addressed the question of legal versus ethical within the context of the AICPA Code of Conduct.

This webinar highlighted 2 case studies in which the decisions made and actions taken were legal, but were not ethical. It also challenged the audience to determine when following the rules simply is not good enough. This engaging conversation concluded with a framework for evaluating legal versus ethical decisions.

Attendees of this McKonly & Asbury Webinar:

  • Evaluated whether a loophole is simply taking advantage of smart strategies or purposefully circumventing the truth.
  • Were given a framework for evaluating legal versus ethical decisions.
