The case study that I chosen is the Conflict of Interest: Case study 2. As it mentioned in the case study, Hardeep who is the IT manager in a government department with more than 500 staff members and six branches across the Australia.

Now he is in an ethical dilemma when he has to choose the best offer, as he found out the offer who made by Mandeep is the general manager of company B is his best friend. He discovered that the offer from company A is better than company B. He realized that company B’s software may require more modification where increase the total cost. To resolve this conflict of interest, I would like to use Thomas White’s Framework. Thomas White’s framework for ethical decision making should be more useful to deal with situations in dilemma. White’s framework states: • Analyze the consequences and collecting necessary information. • Analyze the actions. • Making the final decisions. 01. Analyze the consequences and collecting necessary information. In Thomas White’s framework, the first task is to analyze the consequences by answering following questions. • Who will be helped by this decision? • Who will get hurt by the decision? • What type of …show more content…
According to my opinion, Hardeep should be fair to the company and give the priority to the welfare of the department instead of thinking about the personal relationships.

When James Madison drafted the Bill of Rights, he wanted some of the provisions to apply to both the states and the federal government, but the “states would not have ratified the document [Bill of Rights] had the limitations been seen as proscribing state action,” (Scheb, 28). As such, the first amendment reads: “Congress shall make no law…” (First Amendment). In other wordas, the Bill of Rights only provided protections from the federal government—the only government with a “Congress. The states could bypass these restrictions, and many did until the Incorporation Doctrine began to take shape after the Civil War.
A recent ethical dilemma that I faced was regarding a physical therapist assistant (PTA) I was working with at the outpatient rehab clinic that I am working as a rehab aide.

Throughout our lives we are faced with obstacles that will either help or hinder society, if we do not make optimum decisions. Today, we are challenged with the decision of whether or not the more recent dispute between EMC and Pure Storage is within moral limits. I will discuss this topic in the foremost appropriate manner and weigh in on both parties to come to a conclusion which will benefit the American people as well as the businesses and employees. It is absolutely clear that non-compete agreements are not moral. They hinder the employee, free trade, and the overall well fair of the economy.

Consequentialism is a theory that supports maximum good consequences. It states that an individual should choose only those actions that maximize good consequences, as the greater good consequences an act produces the better is that act; not only on individual level but society level as well. Non-consequentialism on the other hand, is a theory opposite to consequentialism and is supported by a German philosopher Immanuel Kant who stated that an individual should respect the consequences of an action, no matter they are bad, and should act with good will and intention. He stated that an action is tolerable only if its maxim can be applied to all, and you want that to happen. Decision making is the most basic and important step in running an organization and every decision involves an opportunity cost.
a) Nordenfelt established the general principle of ‘public interest’ that allows a person to continue their trade freely, making any restrictive covenants void. However, this rule can be upheld if two conditions are complied with: a legitimate interest, and reasonableness. Utilising the principle, the validity of the clause needs to be identified to advise both parties. In addition, if the clause is rendered void using the principle,severance could make it valid and enforceable.
However, as we discussed in class, there are so many situations where ethical decision-making occurs, and there are so many factors that influence why we do what we do. Because we work with a multitude people with interesting and diverse lives and backgrounds, and because we come in with our own baggage and experiences that influence how we act and react, we make split-second decisions all the time that can have profound effects on our work and our consumers. Having so many opportunities to look at my own actions, this particular assignment has been so rewarding and interesting for me. This is the first time in any of my assignments where I have been forced to look at how ethics is involved in our

Every ethical decision is based on the social and cultural context in which it occurs, this is inclusive of the ethical decision to become whistle blowers, as seen in the Dryburgh case study on which this paper is grounded.
