Yeah, I have argued this with others before but I have no problem with it. The company is wrong to risk the employees life while only thinking of their bottomline so ignoring such a venial motived rule is no issue and the company (or anyone else IMO) have no right to any moral judgements as a result. If you get caught then you might get fired but you will be alive. There are times when it is ethical not to be truthful and still have good character and jobs are not always easy to find. It is immoral to have to choose between starving and obeying an immoral and dangerous rule. As I said before the rule therefore is ethically invisible.
