More plagiarism woes for offshore programs

According the Sydney Morning Herald, a lecturer at the University of Western Sydney finds herself in an awkward position in plagiarism matter: The lecturer, who teaches at the university's College of Law and Business, said she could not approve student results for the university's commerce course in Hong Kong until the university dealt with plagiarism claims. But contracts issued to staff working on the college's offshore programs give management the right to withhold payment until staff approve marks and complete all the paperwork.
