Brenda constructs Ben’s behaviour as “unprofessional” because of
the sensitivity of his position and personal circumstances.
However, she attempts to arrange meetings with him that could
be constructed as “unprofessional” in their own right, then denies
to both Harry and Ben that she had motives of personal jealousy.
Ben’s dependence on Brenda made it difficult for him to speak
up, but when Harry finally heard a full version of Ben’s story, he
suggests that Ben was imagining things and calls his allegations
“untenable”. How likely is this?
Brenda’s decision to seek and divulge information exchanged
in confidence raises questions about her own morality and
motives. Later she asked for Ben’s consent, and he gave it, but
she had already consulted Harry beforehand. The incident shows
that managers do not always feel able to respect confidences.
The impression given to Ben by Diane, however, was that Brenda
sought the information even after Diane informed her that Ben
had requested confidentiality. Diane indicated that she did not
volunteer it willingly. This suggests that Brenda and Diane both
faced moral dilemmas. They had to decide who to be loyal to,
who to help, who to protect. How credible is Harry’s claim that
Brenda had “no choice” but to act on the information “given” to
her? Was she seeking to discipline Ben? If so, why?
