Ethics For Hire (News: Analysis & Commentary, July 15)


Corrections & Clarifications

Ethics for hire (News: Analysis & Commentary, July 15)

"Ethics for hire" (News: Analysis & Commentary, July 15) should not have said that a federal court disregarded an investigation launched by Southern Co. because of a conflict of interest. The federal court asked a lower court to determine whether the law firm conducting the investigation had ever represented the accused corporate officers, and the lower court found no evidence of that.Return to top

Work and family (Cover Story, Sept. 16)

In the survey reported in "Work and family" (Cover Story, Sept. 16), the results of one question were inadvertently reversed. The question was: "What effect does work have on your family life?" The correct answers are: 42% of respondents said there was a positive effect, 26% reported a neutral effect, and 32% a negative effect. As a result, in the table of leading companies, "spillover from work into home life" was wrongly described as a weakness for MBNA America Bank, when it should have been described as a strength. The error did not affect the ranking of companies. Also, 1995 sales for Marriott International Inc. were reported incorrectly in a table. The correct figure is $8.9 billion.Return to top
