Support your answers with relevant references (as well as the Codes and Laws).

Things to Consider in Your Assignment:

  • You should list at least 3 values from the ACS Code of Ethics and up to 5 clauses from the ACS Code of Professional Conduct, you think are specifically relevant in deciding how to resolve the situation. Make sure that you refer to the most up to date ACS Codes which are available on the ACS website – www.acs.org.au.
  • You should also list any relevant Australian legislation that you think applies to this scenario.
  • Your analysis, discussion and recommendations should use the framework you selected in Week 3 – Solving an Ethical Dilemma.
  • Your assignment should be 500 – 800 words in length (excluding your code lists, legislation list and references).

  • use a cover page – as per the suggested template,
  • use in‐text referencing,
  • use complete Harvard Notation, submit in “Word” format or equivalent format that can be readily opened in MS Word, keep your formatting simple: Arial 11pt, 10pt after paragraph, single line spacing, headings in bold, maximum 2 indent levels/bullet levels.
