Study each of the following cases carefully. Briefly state the principle of law and your decision.
Ethical Responsibility Quinly and her husband, customers at Greenway Supermarkets, purchased several pounds of filet mignon and checked out their purchases at the newly installed self-scanners. The price listed on the packages of meat totaled $38; however, when Quinly swiped the packages through the self-scanner, it indicated a price of only $6. Quinly believed that she should inform the management at the supermarket that the computer in the self-scanner had been incorrectly programmed with respect to the price of this product. However, Quinly’s husband argued that since the store would be legally obligated to charge the lower price, it was not necessary to call attention to the error. Is Quinly correct in her belief that the ethical course of action is to inform the store?
