Abstract

Professionals in information and communications technology (ICT) face ethical situations in the workplace and need to deal with them effectively. Various attempts have been made to assist them. On the one hand, there have been attempts to educate professionals on how to conduct ethical reasoning (Simpson, Nevile & Burmeister, 2003; Al-Saggaf and Burmeister, 2012). On the other hand, there have been attempts to help professionals better utilise the codes of conduct of their professional society (Burmeister & Weckert, 2003; Bowern, Burmeister, Gotterbarn & Weckert, 2006; Burmeister, 2013). The present study, supported by the Australian Computer Society and the Australian Research Council, surveys ICT professionals in Australia about their perceptions regarding the most common ethical problems they face in the workplace.
