Study each of the following cases carefully. Briefly state the principle of law and your decision.
Ethical Violation Stotts was employed as a technician in the engineering department of Raytron Corporation. All the engineers on staff were required to sign agreements that they would not accept employment with another company in the industry within three years of leaving Raytron. Technicians, who had limited access to company secrets, were not required to sign such agreements. After working at Raytron for about two years, Stotts realized that he was deeply involved in development and had access to the same data as the engineers did. Stotts actively sought a position with Raytron’s primary competitor and was hired by Watani Engineering. Because he did not have an engineering degree, he assumed that he had been hired because of his knowledge of Raytron’s trade secrets. Did Stotts violate legal or ethical dictates?
