This case introduces an undergraduate summer intern at an accounting firm who is told to bill twice as much time as an administrative task requires, thus overbilling the clients. Although the amount of the overcharge to any individual client is small, the intern believes that her professional reputation and future employment is at stake, as is her self-respect.
This case works well with undergraduates, especially as preparation for intern assignments.
