Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used as a guide.
You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.
A. Take on the role of the ethics officer in the scenario and address the following:
1. Describe three rights and responsibilities of employees based on the scenario.
2. Evaluate two ethical responsibilities of the employer within the context of the employer/employee relationship described in the scenario.
3. Develop one ethical business dilemma that can be used to demonstrate employee understanding of the company’s ethical standards.
4. Evaluate the dilemma from part A3 from a utilitarian and relativistic perspective.
5. Describe two common ethical decisions that reflect corporate ethics and responsibilities that employees can face while working in a corporate setting.
Note: These should be different from the ethical business dilemma in part A3.
6. Explain why each ethical decision in part A5 presents an ethical dilemma and how an individual might justify unethical behavior (e.g., common excuses).
B. Acknowledge sources, using in-text citations and references, for content that is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized.
C. Demonstrate professional communication in the content and presentation of your submission.
