The aim of this article is to examine how a businessman, who takes care about moral considerations should behave in some situations, in which some blameworthy common practices are present. There is a dilemma between efficiency (or even continuing existence) of business on one side and moral considerations on the other. The proposition formulated by R. M. Green is analyzed and criticized. The 'everyone is doing it' argument is rejected., as well as the requirements coming from moral absolutism. In the end an argument based on writings of T. Carson, J. G. Dees and P. C. Crampton, which shows the proper way of moral behaviour where such dilemmas are met, is presented.
