Utilitarianism express that actions are judged on whether they contribute to the good of everyone rather than detracting. If I tell the person the identification of the charging party I detract from proving good for everyone. I affect all four negative parties. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission gets harmed as they indirectly could get involved in a lawsuit. I get harmed because I would lose a job.
Another option would be to take them to court claiming promissory estoppel. Furthermore, claim that due to a promise that the manager was depending on, that the defendant failed to keep, the company lost money and profits and should be held responsible even if the promisor claims that it should not be legal (“Promissory Estoppel,” 2010). Either one of these options the store would prevail on due to the nature of the contract and that it was for the transfer of good from Mr. Stevens to the
Taking a blind eye to potential risks means that a fraudulent act is conducted under the full awareness of the circumstances. Even though the engineers, regardless of their positions in the firm, had the opportunities to disclose the limitations of the defeat device and has found viable alternatives, they proceeded with the cheating mechanism. As described in the ethical implication section, the cause of the incident attributes combination of firm’s decision owing to the underrating punishment and prioritizing economic interest and the absolute compliance of the employees, which has been exacerbated by the company’s aggressive corporate. If the engineers had not overlooked the implications of their unlawful actions and instead provided a method that prioritized the public health without compromise, the accident could possibly have been avoided. This case demonstrates how engineer’s unethical decision, such as compromising public safety for financial maintenance and wrong justification of immoral practices, can result in irreparable damages in the public
This has been instrumental in defining as well as prohibiting unfair labor practices. One of the unfair labor practices that the Act prohibits involves employers interfering with, restraining, or coercing employees even as they exercise their rights (Bain, 2011). This includes the right to organize and take part in the labor organizations, as well as to collectively negotiate for wages or improved working
According to the lesson, individuals use different moral philosophies depending on whether they are making a personal decision or a decision related to work. Goals and pressures are different when it comes to the decisions of success in the work place or in a person’s life outside of work (Ferrell, Fraedrich, & Ferrell, 2015). The lesson also stated that an employee might view a specific action as good in the business sector but unacceptable outside of work. I would say as one of the investment feeders, I should be held responsible to the highest extent for any part that I played in the loss of the investor’s money. In the case of Bernie Madoff, he was also fraudulent against a few of his investment feeders.
Corporate Manslaughter refers to the decisions undertaken by a company that went wrong either in regards to their execution or due to the existence of some inherent fault or loophole in the decision making and its subsequent execution, resulting in or causing death of a person or persons. A company exists only in the contemplation of the law and thus cannot put behind bars in lieu of punishment hence, what can be imposed on the company is not imprisonment and fine only Justice Lindley has described the jurisprudential essence of the term company as follows, “A company is an association of persons, these persons contribute money or money’s worth to a common stock” .The common stock so contributed is denoted in money and is called as
If the employer does any of these prohibited acts, the union can take it up with the board on behalf of the employees. For example, the union representing Boeing Co. engineers and technical workers filed charges against the company for interfering with employees engaging in concerted union activity. The board investigates charges and may take a variety of actions, including issuance of cease-and-desist or reinstatement orders to remedy unfair treatment against employees. Unions ensure that employers comply with the law and can lodge appeals in federal court if employers do not respect board decisions. Legislation Unions also play a key role in developing labor laws and regulations for effective worker protection.
Theoretical Framework This study is postulated on the theories, concepts and principles regarding on Workplace Bullying and its impact on employees productivity and performance. According to Einarsen’s conceptual framework Model (see Figure 1) of the nature and cause of workplace bullying (Einarsen 2003; as cited in Einarsen, 2005), three elements can describe the causes of workplace bullying: individual, social and organizational. Hoel and Stalin (2003; as cited in Lewis, 2004) suggested that there are four antecedents to organizational causes of workplace bullying, namely: the changing nature of work, how work is organized, the organizational culture, and leadership. The changing nature of work can be attributed to globalization, mergers and the current economic recession, among others (McCarthy, 2003). ‘How work is organized’ and the ‘leadership style’ of the organization can produce role conflict and poor work control (Einarsen, Raknes and Matthiesen, 1994; as cited in Jennifer, 2000).
Introduction The issue of this case study would firstly involve with Sally's working relationship with the organization My Technology Pty Ltd. She was the victim of the issue of bullying and harassment in the workplace. The last issue there would be social media policy that was breach potentially which would regard as misconduct of employee's whom should not be breaching the company policy. Before we could conclude whether Sally is their independent contractor or an employee, we should find out and look at the rule of personal services and the other common law test which are the control test, integration test, the economic reality test, the ready mixed concrete test and also the multi-factor test. After studying the case, we would be able to
