This is a question Dodgy work ethics

Chthonic asks: What's the naughtiest thing a boss has ever asked you to do? And did you do it? Or perhaps you are the boss and would like to confess.

I can go on and on.
My company pirates it's own software, which is illegal as you all know.
It's a major pharmacy and gives away Schedule 2 drugs, which is illegal under any circumstance.
Even if we know someone is getting a prescription illegally, or if they are doctor shopping, we are prohibited from reporting them because "we make money off of them."
My company sells private patient information to third parties. That is a HIPAA violation.
And as for treating the employees like crap, they cut our benefits to increase executive bonuses, they cut our hours to make profit increase instead of maintain. If I couldn't live without the pay, I would've quit.

And I reported our state board of pharmacy for giving away the drugs on one instance, and was subsequently disciplined and transferred to another store.
This stuff is what I typed off the top of my head. I'm currently amassing paperwork of all of this and when I find another job, I'm gonna get a lawyer and report all of it.

You're in America then.
I understand why you wish to remain anonymous, but I would love to know which pharmacy so that I can never darken their doors again. Disgusting.

Have you considered going to the press? I hope you can find employment with a (relatively) more principled company and can find a way to punish the bastards in some way.

Getting disciplined for turning in the violation probably breaks all sorts of U.S. whistleblowing laws, depending on where you live. Maybe you should get a lawyer *now* and see how much you could get from them if you sued...?
