Now since this trope involves contrivance, this is not technically possible in real life. Luffy can’t keep sailing with a doomed ship, but he is quite undiplomatic about his decision to let it go, going out of his way to avoid admitting that he himself had been unwilling to accept that the ship was doomed. Luffy even silences Nami when she tries to explain his point of view to Usopp, which makes it easier for Usopp to perceive Luffy as being heartless. It’s plain heartless to abandon it, but at the same time still sailing in it is plain brainless and Luffy is not THAT brainless. Usopp’s denial is part of his character personality based on his own side story. Eventually Usopp learns that things like this happen and he has to learn from this, not deny it or lie to himself leading to a moment of redemption, yes, this one, at the end of Water Seven Arc he’s still a coward and fights with deception, but now he doesn’t make excuses for his coward personality; he now accepts he is a coward. The Soul Society in Bleach does more than occasionally show fondness for this trope as Captain Yamamoto and Central 46 have been considered to do this before. Though some are willing to contest the former, the latter not so much.
Whether it’s because of human nature, bad timing or just bad luck, the legal fallout from dating at work is back in the news, making headlines as corporate executives and government officials continue to roll the dice, losing or leaving their jobs because of a workplace relationship gone awry. But office romances between consenting colleagues are not illegal, and there are no statutes or laws against dating anyone at work.
So why is there a profound fear of legal liability, and when do employers and the courts have a right to intervene?

Organizational and Consultant Conflict of Interest Comptroller General New OCI Waiver As discussed in our last decision, the record presented at that time showed that the agency had concerns about the activities of an individual identified as Mr. The agency expressed interest in Mr. The agency’s investigation identified certain non-public, competitively useful information that was available to Mr. Despite this fact, the agency confined its OCI analysis and conclusion to considering whether Mr.
The principal basis for DSFG’s allegation is its position that the agency did not perform any further investigation into the activities of Mr. Y in the wake of our last decision, and therefore could not know the extent of the OCI presented by his participation in preparing the SRA quotation. We deny this aspect of DSFG’s protest. The agency head or a designee may waive any general rule or procedure of this subpart by determining that its application in a particular situation would not be in the Government’s interest.
Any request for waiver must be in writing, shall set forth the extent of the conflict, and requires approval by the agency head or a designee. Agency heads shall not delegate waiver authority below the level of head of a contracting activity. While our Office will review an agency’s execution of an OCI waiver, our review is limited to consideration of whether the waiver complies with the requirements of the FAR, that is, whether it is in writing, sets forth the extent of the conflict, and is approved by the appropriate individual within the agency.
Here, there is no issue regarding whether the waiver is in writing and was approved by the appropriate agency official. We conclude that it does. As we noted in our prior decision, the contracting officer identified an array of information that had been available to Mr.

Conflict of Interest Tue, This is also the place to discuss certain conflict provisions missing from this code such as outside employment , which are discussed in the comments to this subsection. The central point of an ethics code is that city officials and employees should not prefer, over the public interest, their own interests or the interests of their family or business associates. There are other relationships that should be included in the above list, but cannot due to problems of defining them.
These include romantic relationships short of domestic partnership, and close friends and associates. The general rule is: If it looks to others as if you might be giving someone special treatment, or if it would look that way to others if they knew about the relationship, then you should not act with respect to that person or entity, and instead recuse yourself under subsection 3 below.
It is important to give city residents confidence that their officials and employees are treating everyone the same, even when you believe that you can be totally impartial. The most common way to define conflict of interest is as follows: No person subject to this code shall have any interest, financial or otherwise, direct or indirect, or engage in any business, employment, transaction or professional activity, or incur any obligation of any nature, which is in substantial conflict with the proper discharge of his or her public duties or employment.
However, most government officials and employees do, on occasion, have conflicting interests. The important thing is not for them to prevent them, but rather to manage them honestly and responsibly, that is, to disclose them and to not act where there is such a conflict, no matter how impartial they feel they can be. What matters is not whether one can still act with integrity, but whether one will be perceived that way.

Provoke personal abuse Cause defensiveness Conflict is not always destructive. When it is destructive, however, managers need to understand and do something about it. A rational process for dealing with the conflict should be programmed. Such a process should include a planned action response on the part of the manager or the organization, rather than relying on a simple reaction or a change that occurs without specific action by management.
Occupational stress Interpersonal conflict among people at work has been shown to be one of the most frequently noted stressors for employees.

See Protest at ; Protester’s Comments at In this regard, the identification of conflicts of interest is a fact-specific inquiry that requires the exercise of considerable discretion. The primary responsibility for determining whether a conflict is likely to arise, and the resulting appropriate action, rests with the contracting agency.
Once an agency has given meaningful consideration to whether an OCI exists, our Office will not sustain a protest challenging a determination in this area unless the determination is unreasonable or unsupported by the record. First, we note that while Safeguard’s proposal disclosed the contracts at issue, it did not “recognize  this perceived conflict on its own,” as the agency asserts.
Instead, Safeguard represented that there were no OCIs and that no mitigation was necessary despite representing that “[u]nder this contract [Safeguard’s parent company] processes Medicaid [c]laims” for those states. The CO’s preaward OCI memorandum, the stated purpose of which “is to document the [CO’s] identification, evaluation and determination of significant actual, apparent or potential [OCIs],” also fails to address Safeguard’s parent company’s contracts.
While the CO’s memorandum included information from the offeror’s proposal, internet and database searches, a conference call, and identified several potential OCIs that required “actions in order to avoid, neutralize or mitigate actual, apparent or potential [OCIs],” it did not include discussion of the MMIS-related contracts held by Safeguard’s parent company. In this regard, the CO concluded that unless specifically identified, the CO did not identify any concerns “with the offeror’s assessment of the [OCIs] associated with the contracts listed in the submission.
During the development of the protest, our Office requested that the agency provide additional information pertaining to its consideration of the alleged conflict, including any documentation of the conference call referenced in the CO’s preaward OCI memorandum. In response, the agency pointed to an email in which CMS asked Safeguard to verify whether the Florida and Georgia Medicaid contracts support has changed, and Safeguard’s response.
However, nothing in the record shows the agency’s consideration or analysis of this information. In its responses to GAO’s questions, the agency explained that performance by one entity as both an MMIS provider and as a UPIC is merely a perceived conflict and that the agency discussed this “perceived conflict” with Safeguard prior to the award of this task order, the award of the task order for the northeastern jurisdiction, and the award of the UPIC.
We find the agency’s responses troubling for several reasons.

Reamer, PhD October 13, Most of the ethics cases on which I consult involve complicated ethical decisions concerning social workers’ conflicting values, duties, and obligations. The most challenging ethical dilemmas require exceedingly difficult choices involving client confidentiality, dual relationships and boundary issues, conflicts of interest, informed consent, and documentation.
For example, social workers may have to choose between a client’s fundamental right to confidentiality and the social worker’s duty to disclose confidential information to protect a third party from harm. Or social workers may have to sort out complicated boundary issues when they live and work in rural communities, where it is often impossible to avoid dual relationships with clients. Over the years, I have learned that not all ethical issues take the form of complex dilemmas.
Among the most common, in my experience, are mistakes triggered by social workers’ intense reactions to clients’ behaviors. The Ethical Implications of Countertransference Recently, I received a telephone call from an attorney representing a clinical social worker’s former client. The attorney explained that her client, a mother who was involved in a protracted, contentious child custody battle with her ex-husband, was “enraged” by the social worker’s alleged conduct arising out of a dispute between the social worker and the client.
According to the attorney, during the course of their clinical relationship, the client became increasingly concerned that her social worker, Mr. The mother reportedly challenged the content and wording of several of Mr. Toward the end of one anger-filled telephone conversation, Mr. The former client subsequently sued Mr. During a formal deposition, Mr.
