    John, Mary, Charlie and Martha did this particular work together. But a few weeks later, John, Mary and Charlie were busy with something else so had to focus on the other work.

    Martha decided to take the work and submit it to a superior without informing John and Mary. Charlie knew only after the work was submitted.

    Would the people of TSR say that Martha is in the wrong? Why?

    It depends on the intentions of Martha.

    Did she try and claim all the credit for the work?
    Was there any credit available for the work?
    Was there a deadline for the work to be submitted by?

    Martha mentioned it's a group project (sorta) but never mentioned the names. Martha got brownie points for sending the work. Others didn't.

    It should.

    Not too sure. None that I know of.

    Care to elaborate?

    How would you react if you were John or Charlie?

    I'd confront Martha and ask why she felt it was appropriate to hand the work in without a mention that it was a group effort.

    Depends on if Martha has big breasts and if OP can post pictures of her

    Martha said you were busy with other works, so Martha decided to just submit it. Martha did mention it was a group project (sorta)

    I don't think her submitting it was a problem.

    The problem is the lack of notification to the other members of the group that she's going to hand it in. All of this would have avoided if she had done so.

    Martha is a little bit of a snake

    Martha can't just sorta say it's a group project, she needs to mention the other names and she should have informed the others that she was handing it in, not just do it of her own accord. So what if the others were busy, how long does it take to send a text or an email?

    Martha is wrong and if I was dealing with Martha she would be getting the full wrath of my *****

    But Martha did mention it's a group project (in her own way).

    It's absolutely fine. Martha cracked on and made progress with a piece of work. She didn't claim credit for it all.

    Move along, there's nothing to see here except normal workplace activities.

    Interesting. But she did get credit for it as I mentioned.

    Is this something that you will do as well?
