The Ethicist: Work Search

Date: April 22, 2007
Author: Randy Cohen
QUOTE: The expert on workplace law whom I consulted confirms that your boss has the legal right to search your bag. But ethics sets a higher standard, placing a value on human dignity, something you need not relinquish on the job. To search someone is to treat him as if he were untrustworthy, if not dishonest.
