Ethical Issue In Business Paper
Write a typed, double-spaced paper (two or three pages in length) analyzing a case raising an ethical issue relevant to the professions. In doing so, it is often useful to interview one or more individuals with work experience in your field. (See below.)
a. Describe a case (preferably pertaining to the field in which I expect to work, business field) that raises pertinent ETHICAL issues. Include all information about the case relevant to an ethical analysis.
–Note that the case must raise a substantive ethical issue. That usually means that it is not initially clear which course of action is morally best. Papers that do not focus on a controversial or difficult ETHICAL question will not receive credit.
b. Develop an Ethical Analysis of the case:
i. What courses of action are available? (What are the options?)
iia. What are the relevant models, values, principles, guiding ideas and weighing factors? You should explicitly discuss several ethical factors that apply to your case, such as the principle of universality, the Golden Rule, the autonomy model of medicine (if the case is about a patient/medical provider interaction / in my case about the business field), etc. How many factors are relevant depends on your case.
iib. How do these considerations apply to your case?
iii. Give reasons for thinking some of these factors are more central or relevant than others.
iv. On the basis of that analysis, which is the best course of action?
v. What needs to be monitored after the decision is made?
