... Ethical Viewpoint Amanda M. Seeley GEN/200 September 24, 2012 Denise Juanico Ethical Viewpoint In completing the ethical lens inventory I became aware that my personal preferred lens is relationship and reputation lens. I strive to please everyone in the community equally. I take into consideration their emotions and thoughts to decide the best solutions. Even though I try to please everyone my process doesn’t always work I am arrogant in the process and forgot to keep in mind that not everyone has that same resources which can lead to unfair outcomes. Another blind spot I have is that I give unrealistic roles to individuals, forgetting that they are capable of making mistakes regardless of what I have assigned them to be responsible for. My strengths are that I aim for fair outcome for everyone. I want everyone voice to be heard no matter if they are rich or poor have power or not. I use critical thinking and research and carefully evaluate the problem before coming to a solution. My biggest weakness is I can get on a “power trip” I think that my way is the only way and believe that the rules don’t apply to me because of the position I am in. I forget that even though I may be a leader I am required to follow the same set of rules that I have set in place. I must remember that I don’t possess any special privileges and must follow the same rules as everyone else. The main value that comes along with relationship lens would be being FAIR. Everyone should be treated......

...Ethical Management of IT The Fourth Amendment of the Constitution protects us against “unreasonable search and seizures” without proper cause (Freeman 2). This was established to ensure that our privacy was upheld and that agents of the government could not infringe on those rights. However, what happens when the government uses information illegally obtained by an individual outside the jurisdiction of the United States? In these cases we’ve seen that the U.S. government is able to use information illegally obtained by international hackers in order to prosecute U.S. citizens. This essay will review the case of a unanimous white-hat hacker from Turkey using a Trojan horse to find individuals with child pornography on their personal computers. In early 2000, an anonymous Turkish citizen was able to utilize a Trojan horse to identify users that frequent and download child pornography (Freeman 3). The anonymous user was then able to report his findings to the authorities and allow them to further research the allegation in order to prosecute the individual. This led to the arrest and prosecution of Bradley Steiger to 17-years in prison on child pornography charges. The anonymous user was able to garner the same results a year later when he presented evidence to the authorities against William Jarrett of Virginia (Freeman 3). William Jarrett filed an action against the District Court asking for a reversal of the conviction based on the illegal methods used by hacker......

...Ethical Dilemma – Samouel’s Greek Cuisine Joshua has spent several hours researching his portion of his team project. His job is to collect secondary data. The conflicting information that Joshua has found is still considered secondary data even though it is not from a reputable firm. Secondary business data can be very helpful in determining the correct business path for a company to go in. The data, though conflicting should still be incorporated and explained in his research findings to his group. The data is from a government -sponsored website and may be very valuable. Joshua should stay late and examine the quality of the data he has found on the conflicting website. He needs to look at the reliability and the validity of the data that is presented. Who is the information being provided through and how was it collected, and is it free from bias? What was the data in the study originally collected for and does that influence the outcome. The information is from a government sponsored website so there is some credibility in the source. I do not feel that Joshua should ignore this research in his findings. If Joshua feels that he does not want to include this data he should talk to his group and explain why he feels it is not relevant. It should not be hidden from the findings if it has a role to play in the research and can help the restaurant’s performance in the future. There is a value in secondary research and when it is used......

...Introduction In management there are always different ethical situations involved. Today one of those major problems in management has been diversity. Diversity in the workplace refers to the amount that cultural diversity is inside a company. “Diversity is generally defined as acknowledging, understanding, accepting, valuing, and celebrating differences among people with respect to age, class, ethnicity, gender, physical and mental ability, race, sexual orientation, spiritual practice, and public assistance status (K.A. Green, M. López, A. Wysocki, & K. Kepner, 2008).” Moral and Ethical Issues Acquiring diversity in the business opens them to grasp the realization of the demographics of its marketplace, just as long as the company uses the opportunity that they receive from the knowledge of a diverse working environment. Businesses toady like to display their “Equal Opportunity Employer” status. What this status says is they like having a diverse work setting with no discrimination. Diversity is not going through that well mainly because of discrimination. “Discrimination occurs whenever something other than qualifications affects how an employee will be treated (L. Trevino & K. Nelson, K., 2007, p. 69).” Discrimination can affect race, age, religious beliefs, ethnicity, gender, sexual preference and any type of quality that does not fit with the society accepted normal. The issue of discrimination is not just happening in the hiring system, but even in the choices for...

...Making Ethical Choices Indicate whether you consider each of the following actions ethical, unethical, or a grey area. Which of the actions would you do? Which would you feel uncomfortable doing? Which would you refuse to do? 1. Taking home office supplies (e.g., pens, markers, calculators, etc.) for personal use. I feel that if one person takes supplies then they will all do it. Furthermore, it is unethical if office supplies are taken, and personally I would not take supplies from an office because it is unprofessional. 2. Inflating your evaluation of a subordinate because you know that only people ranked excellent will get pay raises. I believe this is unethical because it is morally unacceptable and as a Christian man I would feel convicted doing it and would ultimately not commit this act. 3. Making personal long-distance calls on the company phone. If it’s an absolute emergency no, but other than that it is unethical. Employees should not use the company phone for long distance calls unless it’s an emergency. I would feel comfortable making a long distance call. 4. Updating your Facebook page and visiting the pages of friends during business hours. That is unethical and I know by experience that companies and business take this very serious. At my last job, I worked at a church and they had anonymous people looking through Facebook and Twitter to see who was on there posting during office hours. 5. Writing a feasibility report......

On Confronting Ethical Dillemas

...Elfred Ulysses del Rosario MS Entrepreneurship ID No. 11091193 On Confronting Ethical Dillemas The approach used for each case employs an elaboration of the various ethical concerns that are both stated and implied in each case. Along the way, it will also highlight certain moral values that should be recognized as appropriate resolutions to possible conflicts. The importance of this is to be able to identify and compare possible conflicting values as to which of them bears more moral weight regarding the decision or the necessary course of action. It is important to keep in mind that all views have their own foundations of moral appreciation according to certain values. Some of them do share some of it, but their differences give these views their distinct character. CASE 1: Ron Jones The process of bidding in procurement generally involves advertising a certain product or service needed by a company. Other companies providing the said goods are encouraged to participate in the process by providing the terms, specifications, and quotations about their goods. The company in need would then normally choose the lowest bidder, or the next lowest bidder should certain requirements on quality or other qualifications are not met. This is done to ensure that a company in need had considered all possible alternatives as basis for selecting a supplier to sufficiently provide their need at the most reasonable price and quality, and that no biased preferences were implemented during......

...interview or having someone present to witness the interview there could be some misunderstanding of what was said. The detective could change the story that the minors gave so that the detective could have a confession and crack an easy case. Workplace ethics is a tricky area as to which one word could violate someone’s ethics and could have uproar in the workplace. The detective did not use good judgment when it came to interviewing the minors because he did not follow protocol. That one detective was a bad apple to the whole department and was close to having the whole department under review. Having an department under review will cause a big uproar in the media. With the detective going to the district attorney is was being very ethical when it came to making a decision. With him ignoring the situation it could have caused the district attorney to go along with the confession and pressing charges against the minors and they could have been sent to jail for the rest of their life. In the judicial system evidence speaks for itself and with the nature of the crime that was committed the jury possibly could have went along with the confessions and gave a guilty verdict to the minors....

Companies that are desirable like Google will be most attractive for especially young talented “geeky” specialists that like the combination of being able to work independently on their own projects while following a bigger goal with other specialists like themselves to make the world a better place. The challenge here is to be able to work on more projects quantitywise without losing the quality of each of them. Internally Google will have to be clearer on what their rules and laws look like.

...of human existence and how they could define the meaning of “good life.” Ethical theories are taught to us each and every day we live. None of these theories are necessarily invalid, and many people believe in at least one of them, but not everyone believes in the same ones. The main ethical theories are deontological ethical theories: rights theory and justice theory, and teleological ethical theories: utilitarianism and profit maximization. Ethical rights theory has incorporated a wide range of ethical philosophies pertaining to the fact that human rights are fundamental and must be respected by other humans. Each individual faces a moral compulsion not to threaten the rights of others unless a greater right takes precedence. Ethical rights theory became more prominent in the 18th century by the philosopher Immanuel Kant. He preferred to think of people as actors free to make choices and judge the morality of an action. To help understand what he meant he created two categorical imperatives. The first being, “Act only on that maxim whereby at the same time you can will that it shall become a universal law,” meaning that anyone can judge an action by applying it to anything in general. The second was “Always act to treat humanity, whether in yourself or in others, as an end in itself, never merely as a means,” meaning that one should not manipulate another to achieve their own personal happiness. Ethical rights theory tries to protect the rights of everyone no matter what......

...Ethical Issues and Management Paper Latiffia Stroman XMGT/216 September 25, 2011 Elizabeth Berg Ethical Issues and Management Paper There are times when a manager or supervisor doesn’t know how to deal with an ethical issue in the workplace. Some managers feel they need to break company’s rules if they want good performance or results. Some of them feel like they have to be friends with their employees versus their supervisor in order to get them to work on time or for them to perform their work duties. This is a struggle for a lot of supervisor doing what is right when they know it is wrong. When supervisor or managers ignored certain things it not only affects them it affects all the people that work for that company. If you work in a sales environment company and only one agent is performing interims of getting sales. That great for that individual, but that one person can carry the whole company. So as managers they need to encourage their other employee to do better. Give them steps on what they can do to improve their performance. Threes no I in team when you for a company. Now there are a lot of managers and supervisors that do what is right no matter what. They don't let other outside sources affect their morals and judgment when handing ethical situations. Gathering facts and during an investigation on how to solve the problem don't make you bias it makes you fair. Fairness is very important in a business. Who doesn't want to be treated fairly? You can do......

According to Noel Preston (2001, p.18) ethics indicates the general views of what is right, fair or good. It is also the core values, rules which we use to make our choices and actions. Similarly, (Boardman, 2005) said that ethics is applied naturally for many areas such as our own lives, business and an organisation. In our daily lives, making decisions and actions seem to be driven or motivated from/ by the certain standards or values. Furthermore, ethics target on evaluating the right or wrong behaviours of both individuals and the good or bad performance of an organisation. This report will evaluate the ethical approach which Bulgaria government uses to make the fence-line decision. This paper will be divided into four parts. The first part is going to summary the Bulgaria cases. The next part will come up with all stakeholders and......

Ethical Dillemas in Healthcare

...Ethical Dilemmas in Health and social care Shoall is a 19 years old woman who suffers from depression and has a history of binge drinking. She has now increasing thoughts of suicide. She does not want that her parents find out that she has these suicidal thoughts and therefore tells the social worker not to inform her parents. When the social worker finds out that Jenny was admitted into the hospital by taking an overdoses, she asks herself why she did not informed Jenny’s mother earlier about her suicidal thoughts. In this essay I’m going to analyse the ethical justification of the question whether the social worker should have informed the parents about Jenny’s suicidal thoughts. In social work it is very important to have respect for the clients right to self-determination. This means that service users should have the right to make their own decisions and solve their problems, whether the social workers agrees with his course of his actions. According to the codes of practice, article 1.3, social workers must support service users right to control their lives and make informed choices about the services they receive. So a social worker might help the client to choose an option, but she is not allowed to influence the client’s decision by using her personal bias and opinions. The right to confidentiality versus the right to self-determination is also an ethical dilemma, which social care workers experience. This plays an important role in suicidal cases. According......

...enabling or background processes that support investment decision-making. As we saw in chapter 7, the processes that render good companies incapable of responding to change are often those that define how market research is habitually done; how such analysis is translated into financial projections; how plans and budgets are negotiated and how those numbers are delivered; and so on. These typically inflexible processes are where many organizations’ most serious disabilities in coping with change reside. Values The third class of factors that affect what an organization can or cannot accomplish is its values. The values of an organization are the criteria by which decisions about priorities are made. Some corporate values are ethical in tone, such as those that guide decisions to ensure patient well-being at Johnson & Johnson or that guide decisions about plant safety at Alcoa. But within the Resources-Processes-Values (RPV) framework, values have a broader meaning. An organization’s values are the standards by which employees make prioritization decisions—by which they judge whether an order is attractive or unattractive; whether a customer is more important or less important; whether an idea for a new product is attractive or marginal; and so on. Prioritization decisions are made by employees at every level. At the executive tiers, they often take the form of decisions to invest or not invest in new products, services, and processes. Among salespeople,......
