A former Ethics Officer at Hewlett-Packard faced charges of a misdemeanor brought against him after the disclosure that Hewlett Packard had hired an investigator to discover the source of leaks to the press about boardroom meetings who posed as another person to obtain phone records of reporters and board members. While some believe that having a chief ethics officer is a requirement for good governance, others believe they act as a mere window dressing or a mask for a company to hide behind.
