Abstract

While information ethics is frequently discussed in research and education circles, it is important to examine how actual IT professionals perceive the topic of ethics in a workplace setting. In this paper, ethics is framed within the context of web accessibility for webmasters. Webmaster responses to a question on ethics can provide a glimpse into how ethics is perceived in a workplace setting. Implications for managers, policymakers, and webmasters, are discussed.
