George is in a difficult situation. My opinion is that George has satisfied his ethical responsibility by reporting John's activity to the district construction engineer. There may be an investigation in progress that would be jeopardized if information about it were shared with George. By reporting to the district construction engineer, the responsibility for any unethical conduct by John has been transferred to the district construction engineer. From this point forward, George needs to focus on his work.
Unfortunately, a side effect of George's ethical behavior in reporting the infraction, and it being ignored by his supervisor, is he has made himself a potential threat to the on-going practice of fraud. His supervisor has control over his annual reviews, his salary and raises and his time off. More openly, there are several people in the chain that would rather he not speak about the infraction any further and could take more permanent steps. Once the bribes start, there is no good end to them.
I would recommend to George that he find a more ethical employer, even if it means a slight pay reduction. There are many out there that preach ethics to a T! And it has been my privilege to work for three of them.
