Question: Assume that Francey Gordon goes to Karen Gross and Frank
Assume that Francey Gordon goes to Karen Gross and Frank Johnson to discuss the matter. Gordon tells Gross and Johnson that just because the freight forwarder indicates the merchandise is picked up on December 31, that doesn’t justify reporting the revenue until the foods are on its way to customers. Gross and Johnson disagree and instruct Gordon to leave the matter alone. What would you do if you were Francey Gordon at this point? Be sure to include your ethical obligations in the discussion.
