Ethics

(Ethics Case and Assignment Instructions are included in the attached pdf files)

Ethics Case Instructions -The purpose of this exercise is to explore ethics and decision making within organizations.

Assignment Guidelines: After reading the case:

1) Name this section ‘Identification of Dilemma’ and address the following (limit to 1  page):

a. What is the overall ethical dilemma?  b. Who can be impacted by the dilemma (people and/or groups)?

2) Provide a brief overview of 2 Frameworks (Approaches) to Managerial Ethics (1+ pages  per framework). Name this section ‘Ethical Frameworks’. Name each sub-section after  the ethical frameworks you choose.

a. Choose from: Utilitarian, Deontology, Self-Interest, Rights, Justice, Social.

b. The textbook and lecture provide general explanations for the approaches above.  Expand on these with external sources. Use in-paper citations and list the  additional references at the end of your paper.  c. This is not copy/paste from the internet. Be sure to write this in your own words  based on your research.

d. This section of your paper should not reference the case. Instead focus on  what you’ve learned (researched) regarding each ethical approach.

3) Provide outcomes to this ethical dilemma (2+ pages). Name this section ‘Evaluation of  Ethical Dilemma’. Address the following in this section:

a. Based on what you’ve learned about the case, which framework (from the two  you’ve explained in the previous section) do you believe will guide you in this  situation? Explain why you will go this direction.

b. What are the implications of this decision (who does it benefit? What are the  positive implications? What are the negative implications?)

c. If you had been guided by the other framework addressed in section 2, what  would have been the positive and negative implications?

d. There’s no right/wrong answer choice, so I won’t grade this on your ability to  choose a particular ethical framework. Instead, I’m more concerned with your  ability to describe why you chose the approach and what happens next based on  the approach. These will help me assess whether or not you understand the  concepts.

e. No need for additional outside resources in this section, as you should refer to the  case and the information provided from section 2.
