Re: Bending the rules to breaking point
As a general rule, if a company allows any of this sort of thing to go on, whether it is strictly legal or not, it is a good indicator of the corporate culture as a whole. If you ever find yourself in such a situation, then you should be trying to find a new job as quickly as is practical. You can even cite the lack of corporate responsibility in your current place of work as your reason for looking for a new job in the interviews - a good prospective employer should take it as a positive thing on your part that you won't be party to that sort of thing, as a demonstration of integrity. A positive side-effect is that if the interviewer thinks your reasoning is bad, then you've identified another company you should be avoiding.
