“Crimes often return to their teacher.”
-Seneca, Thyestes, 311
“Bloody instructions, which, being taught, return / To plague th’inventor.”
The ethics & compliance professional would do well never to recommend an illegal or unethical course. Evidently.
She would do well also never to look the other way when such a course is taken. Doing so allows the perpetrator to blackmail her later on – or worse.
And perhaps she should avoid any employer who seems only to tolerate her advice, lest she is willing to suffer a fate akin to Seneca’s at the hands of Nero.
