Saira Ortiz has been a manager at Qwikall, a large telecommunications company, for ten years. She has worked very hard, but she had to take two unpaid leaves of absence to assist her sick mother, and then later, she took unpaid leave when her children needed care. As a result, she has received only two promotions during that time. She realizes that she probably will not receive any more promotions since the company views her as somewhat unstable.
Last week, a newly promoted manager bragged that he could just “sniff out” accounting errors. Saira, angered at his arrogance, deliberately recorded sales salaries as rent expense. Other accountants were present when she did so. The dollar amounts of her changes were not significant.
