AbstractThis case study looking at issues of bribery, gifts and payments offered to a chemical engineer in the course of his work includes an instructor guide, an introduction to the case, and commentary about the different scenarios presented. In the case, Tom, who was just named the department manager of a large new chemical process unit, is in charge of making sure this new plant is designed to be safe, operable and maintainable. After buying a large number of a new type of valves for the facility, the sales representative who sold him the valves offers to take Tom on a fishing trip in South America.
