Is Byron Burger an example of HR Business Partnering gone wrong?

What would you do in this situation?

A great knowledge of the business and what it's customers are looking for is an admirable attribute to have as an experienced and well respsected HR function that has a great relationship with the a business and it's key decision makers.

Helping it break a fistful of moral ethics is probably considered just one major step too far. Especially to save a few buck on a fine. Will you be ever trusted again?

It's potentially the worst thing an HR function could possibily do, well apart from accidentally releasing the salary data of everyone on an singular email.

So if you were put in this situation, a potential big fine, the big boss saying let's turn them in, what would do? Would your ethics hold out?
