The military justice system enforces discipline and good order within the armed forces, while civilian law enforces punishment. Commanding offers and Senior NCOs have a wide variety of tool s to enforce discipline regarding sexual misconduct. Commanders must also take into consideration the effects that sexual assault has on unit cohesion and morale. Events traumatic in nature effect all Soldiers, whether they were involved with the sexual misconduct or not. It breaks the bond of trust, the sense of safety and security; creates animosity, doubt, and mistrust for leadership.
Your post provided some factual information and personal feelings about the ethical issues and dilemmas of age discrimination. I agree that this topic will continue to manifest as employers intentionally discriminate against current and potential employees, who are in the protected class under The Age Discrimination in Employment Act. The Act has been developed to prohibit illegal behaviors in the workplace, but some employers continue to display unethical behavior (Ferrell, Fraedrich, & Ferrell, 2013). Upon further research, I learned that the anti-age law describes discrimination as both direct and adverse effect forms, which are enforced through a complaint-driven system (Alon-Shenker, 2016). Immediately, I reflected upon the behaviors of
If I were in the situation I would speak directly to the person and tell them how I feel about their comments, if it doesn’t stop I got further to allow my employer to know, and if it just gets worse I would file a legal complaint. Lastly, there are definitely grounds for a sexual harassment complaint because in the text claims that sexual harassment may be verbal and it is creating an offensive work environment, if it has come to the point that someone is resigning because of the comments that is enough grounds for the complaint.
One more form of misuse of authority is sexual harassment that involves staff members and inmates, or their family members, or friends, or staff against staff. Obtaining financial or personal benefits is a form of misconduct in exchange for not pursuing or selectively pursuing an investigation on an inmate or additional charges on inmate. However, accepting bribes and gratuities is unethical. This is a temptation that some officers cannot resist and make the good officers look
If the plaintiff and the defendant can solve the problem by themselves, the defendant only need to pay the loss of plaintiff. However, if the plaintiff does not agree to solve the problem privately, both plaintiff and defendant will go into a complicated process. Both side will need to pay for the court costs, bar fees, and so on. To win the case, it is necessary for both plaintiff and defendant to hire conscientious and expensive lawyers. After the case closed, the defendant will need to pay all the cost if the plaintiff wins the case, including victim’s lost, the court costs, and bar fees.
When sexual violence comes into play, it is a violation of Farley’s claim that free consent is body integrity. It means that a lack of consent would be do not touch, invade, or use one’s body (Farley 218). The ethical norm of free consent is probably the most controversial because it can be argued as both ethical and unethical based on the situation. In the case of human trafficking and pimping, where prostitutes have no say in the sexual violence enacted on them, prostitution can be argued as unethical. But on the other hand, if a prostitute has chosen this lifestyle willingly, it can be argued as ethical.
A college was held liable for injuries that a student suffered while on school grounds. These facts are different in this case mainly because a student is a lawful visitor to their own school’s grounds, where Richard Melville was not a lawful visitor to 666 Elm St. The opposition may also raise the case of Whittaker v. Saraceno, 418 Mass. 196 (1994). Where a tenant was barred from recovery because the criminal act was not foreseeable.
Prior to analysing the applicability of the restorative justice approach vis-à-vis sexual violence or gendered harms, it is pertinent to understand that sexual violence is a serious breach of trust and often a relationship betrayal. In the context of India, the offence of sexual violence may comprise of sexual harassment of women, use of criminal force to women with the intent to outrage her modesty or with the intent to disrobe, stalking, voyeurism and rape. The survivors and offenders of sexual violence suffer from discriminating feelings of humiliation and stigma as a result of the responses from their surroundings. While on one hand, the survivors are not readily accepted by the society and there is a propagation of indignity and stigma
Treasonous Valor Edward Snowden believed he was doing the right thing when he illegally released classified documents. He saw the government’s wrongdoings and thought the public should know that their fourth amendment was being violated. While Snowden believed his intentions were justifiable, his actions created one of our countries’ most controversial issues. He made known of illegal activities by turning around and doing something illegal himself. Two wrongs do not make a right.
Polygraph testing would be considered an exaggerated claim because there is no scientific validity to back up the emotional response. “Because it measures physiological arousal rather than lying per se, the polygraph test is prone to mislabeling innocent persons guilty.” (Lilienfeld, Landfield 1222) As previously discussed, this test is based upon emotions, which the article by Scott Lilienfeld and Kristen Landfield further proves the pseudoscience behind polygraph testing. Throughout law enforcement and police officials’ careers, they are faced with daily challenges in pseudoscience, and the article further describes how lie detection is a part of that process. It also discusses in the article that they agree that the lie detectors should not be administered in a court of law. Another theory that comes into effect when discussing lie detector testing is terror management theory.
