Construction Law & Ethics


1. Why can an engineer or contractor accept some gifts but not other gifts?

2. If you are not involved on a project but observe something that is unsafe, what do you do and why?

3. Are engineers thought to be more ethical than doctors, lawyers, and politicians?

4. What can happen if engineers and contractors are not ethical?


Do a web search to find a legal case involving an engineer or contractor ethical violation and discuss the situation and present the unethical behavior or action and the damage it did or could have caused.

students shall research "bid shopping" and “bid depositories" and discuss their findings and the benefits and problems associated with each of these approaches on the Discussion Board.
