level III ethics

I have a problem. I have first hand knowledge of a Level III personnally directing a field tech to charge time to project A while working on project B. Because project B was underbid and inspections were still required per contract documents. When the Level III was confronted he fell back on the field tech misunderstood and the boss (regional v.p. his supervisor) had directed the A to B chargeing. I have read the ASNT ethics directives and this appears to be a direct violation but is this situation that much of a violation?

Come on, Billy. This isn't a "Level III" ethics issue - this a an issue as to whether it is right or not. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out. Changing timesheets is simply not ethical in any situation. How old are you?
