In this edition, the ethical issue of "borrowing" the work of others is studied. Two relatively short cases are discussed. The first case, Adams v. North Carolina Board, North Carolina 1998, involves a land surveyor. The second case, Caito v. Rhode Island Board, Rhode Island 1998, involves a civil engineer. In both cases, the professionals involved "borrowed" the work of others in order to complete their own projects and neither one saw a problem with the practice. Did their respective Boards agree? Read the cases and found out. The NSPS "Surveyor’s Creed and Canons" is, once again, utilized as a barometer by which to measure the actions of the parties involved. This is a Correspondence Course with a 2-Page Letter covering 2 Court Opinions consisting of 9 pages. This 11-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter, the case-in-chief and the "Surveyor’s Creed and Canons."
OBJECTIVES: To present everyday professional ethical issues based on actual court cases and opinions, resulting in real consequences for the professional(s) and the other parties involved.
