Managerial secrecy: An ethical examination [Book Review]

Journal of Business Ethics 11 (2):147 - 156 (1992)
Abstract
The paper studies the ethics of withholding information about an impending layoff and describes those situations in which managerial secrecy might be justified. It describes a layoff situation in which a manager has the latitude to decide what information to release and when, lists the reasons managers commonly give for withholding the information and analyzes each reason from a consequentialist and a Kantian perspective. The paper uses Sisela Bok''s analyses of lying and secrecy to create the prima facie case against secrecy in the situation.
