From time to time, social work practitioners face different challenges and one of such example is being confronted with ethical dilemmas. An ethical dilemma is defined as “when the social worker sees himself or herself as facing a choice between two equally unwelcoming alternatives, which may involve a conflict of moral values, and it is not clear which choice will be the right one” (Banks, 2012). Ethical dilemmas can occur in the context of either client or organisational-related conflict situations at work. The first ethical dilemma is when the patient refuses medical treatment and services because he or she would not accept that there is any problem. The dilemma lies in how the social work practitioner would respect the patient’s autonomy and determining whether the patient is competent.
However, conflict can arise when it is discovered that a client meets the criteria for a diagnosis that could negatively affect the client because of the stigma attached to that particular diagnosis. Clinicians often feel personal internal pressure as they grapple with diagnosing someone who they believe will suffer from more from being accurately diagnosed than he or she will, if given a less severe diagnosis. Clinicians often want to avoid the negative effects that the labeling of a severe diagnosis will have on a client’s self-esteem (1988). Along with internal pressure, external pressure also weighs heavily on clinicians. In order to adhere to external pressure brought on by agencies seeking and insurance companies seeking reimbursement, clinicians may be pressured to over-diagnosis patients.
Failure to understand the law and the risks which the patients undergo may result in major consequences to not only the employee but the consumer as well. Depending on the individual or facility’s violation, the consequences may include a fine of up to $1.5 million and possible corrective action or imprisonment for the actions caused, as well as the leak of personal information for anyone to seek (Carol, n.d.). Due to the technological advancements, the HIPAA law policies have become stricter, thus creating a sort of fear within the healthcare field. For instance, the General Hospital Corp. and Massachusetts General Physicians Organization, Inc. paid approximately $1.0 million to the government due to violations of the HIPAA law. In this case, an employee working from home accidentally left medical information belonging to 192 patients on a public subway (Carol, n.d.).
Messaging Security: Spam filtering is one of the greatest challenges during the Office 365 implementation. With on-premises Exchange, there are many choices of vendors to provide layers of security and hygiene for your messaging - some based at the gateway and some on the client. But when moving to Office 365, the options diminish significantly. Though Office 365 utilize Exchange Online Protection, it fails to address the more advanced attack that are realized at the connection level as well as the email content level. Data Loss: Data loss is often a major concern for Office 365 customers, because Microsoft 's backup policies cannot guarantee a complete and speedy restore of lost data.
Introduction The reputation of an organization is subject to injury once a hindrance such as a lawsuit occurs against it. Lawsuits against a company may be due to dismissal, which may be constructive, wrongful, or automatically unfair. Dismissal is defined as the process of unilateral employee termination by an employer (Gruman & Saks, 2011). The employer may terminate an employee’s contract with or without notice, or the employee’s term may not be renewed upon expiry. Case Description In the case of Paddy v. Starbucks 2008, the plaintiff was terminated without notice at Starbucks, where he had worked as a National Account Manager, Business Development for 14.5 years.
On addition, had to pay the ACCC’s costs. Primary stakeholders: o Health professionals and buyers who have been informing and guiding parents and children on responsible use of the medication would affected the most.

Ethical dilemmas are made in diverse shapes and structures. Inside of the Mercury Energy and Folole Muliaga case, the ethical decision making from the Mercury Energy spokesperson instigated unwelcomed consequences for the company and for the Muliaga family. Surveying the outcomes encompassing the contractor turning off Mrs. Muliaga power was quite thought provoking, giving her condition. Yet, it 's common for an individual to discover him or herself conferring an unexpected untrustworthy act. For instance, the contractor for Mercury Energy was enacting the policy and procedures set forth by his company.
Nurses face many situations in the workplace which deals with issues of health, life, and death, for example lying to a patient about their diagnosis. According to Kant nurses must determine if lying is an acceptable ethical behavior. Rationally, lying is not ethical and is not tolerable to any situation as it violates the duty to tell the truth to those individuals who are entitled to honest information, in which nurse-patient relationship or trusts will not develop. Deontologist also believes that killing a fetus is wrong and immoral. Deontology suggest that health care workers have a ?moral duty, to maintain and preserve life?
An example for a claim such as this one would be that a person wants to be liked or loved by an individual’s acts of kindness and for the person that individual is, not for being liked or loved for looks or monetary expressions (Garrett). I argue that explaining the wrongness of killing by means of rights in which are given or not given to a fetus is unjustifiable because abortion cases still occur in both sides of the debate of whether it is permissible or not. I make this claim because some individuals who agree with the wrongness of killing still resort to abortion methods to either save the mother or because of their financial
Being in the middle of recreating a new a strategic position for the polaroid brand, the company was suffering losses left and right. From the death of Land in 1991, to new competitors entering the market, Polaroid cut cost where they could and did their best to “just” stay afloat until filing for bankruptcy in October of 2001.

In today’s world, a lot of companies are incorporating a credit score check in the application process. In some cases, this may actually be devastating. Not everyone is in debt due to carelessness, some are in debt because of not having healthcare and being unemployed. Yet a company is going to base this person 's approval on factors that they had no control over. For example, a person may have been laid off due to budget cuts and had to use their credit card to pay for their bills.

How Effective is the Federal Trade Commission In the end of last month we saw FTC Commissioner Maureen Ohlhausen speak at a panel titled Federal Online Data Security Regulation: Where Are We Going? in which she shed some light on the agency 's approach towards enforcing data security. She stated that while the Federal Trade Commision simply doesn 't have the time to investigate every reported breach it has a remarkable 70% closure rate in prosecuting data security cases. Ohlhausen also admitted that the data security program of the FTC is not perfect, elaborating that the agency closes a case after it has deemed the company 's security as good, or at least reasonable. This is due to the nature of the rapidly evolving technological
I think Lloyd should not fire Roberto either, even though we know that it is an attitude problem with Roberto calling on cooks. What Roberto did, we cannot define is right or wrong, because at some point in our lives, we will be in a situation where frustration at work took over us. I think that Roberto’s attitude is mainly the problem from this situation, If would be best if Lloyd can have a talk with Roberto and discuss a way to fix all his problems at work. The last appraisal was six months ago and the supervisor already noted his file for being the troubles. I believe he was not understood well enough, and have a serious attitude to fix his problems.
