As Lee's supervisor, Bourque is afraidLee's behavior will be seen as a violation of the CFA Code and Standards. Does Bourque have cause for concern?
A. Yes
B. No, because her responsibilities do not apply.

LyncKidd I'd be concerned about the integrity of the employee. If they cheated that, maybe they thought they'd get away with insider trading or accepting perks under the desk. I guess I overthought this.
gerdvar Went to the same chain of though than you, I guess questions aren't suppossd to overreach in some cases
Bewitcher Exactly my thoughts - is that overthinking? I strongly doubt that - i'm pissed
GeorgeM That's an incredibly serious accusation to not have any concerns over.
Kiniry So I guess that this question is asking if Bourque should be concerned that SHE has violated the Code and Standards.

But the wording makes it seem like she should be concerned that Lee has violated the standards.
