You are working as HR Director in FMCG organization. As you return to your office from a meeting, you notice that your secretary is on the phone. When you enter your room, you see that one line on your phone is lit (the one your secretary is on) and one is blinking-someone is on hold. You pick up the blinking line and you get an earful. It is your biggest retail customer. She has called twice, once letting the phone ring 8 times before hanging up and a second time letting it ring 7 times before your sectary picked up the phone. Your secretary then put your customer on hold for 9 minutes. No one get back to your customer until you picked up the line. When you ask, your secretary says that she was talking to her husband, with whom she is on the verge of breaking up.




What do you say or do to your secretary and why?

Topic/Area for Discussion

 “Ethical issues in HRM”


This Graded Discussion Board will cover first 11 lessons.

Ethics is the discipline that examines one's moral standards or the moral standards of a society.

It asks how these standards apply to our lives and whether these standards are reasonable or
unreasonable—that is, whether they are supported by good reasons or poor ones. Therefore, a
person starts to do ethics when he or she takes the moral standards absorbed from family,
church, and friends and asks: What do these standards imply for the situations in which I find
myself? Do these standards really make sense? What are the reasons for or against these
standards? Why should I continue to believe in them? What can be said in their favor and what
can be said against them? Are they really reasonable for me to hold? Are their implications in
this or that particular situation reasonable?

Taking Vandivier as an example, we might ask if writing the false report was really wrong
given his responsibilities to support his family. Moreover, the company, not Vandivier, would
be held responsible for any faulty brakes. Finally, even if he did not cooperate and was
consequently fired, the brakes would still be manufactured and installed. The consequences of
writing the report or not would be the same, except that if he chose not to participate he would
be fired. It is in considering such points that we begin to do ethics.

Ethics is the study of moral standards—the process of examining the moral standards of a person
or society to determine whether these standards are reasonable or unreasonable in order to apply
them to concrete situations and issues. The ultimate aim of ethics is to develop a body of moral
standards that we feel are reasonable to hold—standards that we have thought about carefully and
have decided are justified standards for us to accept and apply to the choices that fill our lives.
Ethics is not the only way to study morality. The social sciences—such as anthropology,
sociology, and psychology—also study morality, but do so in a way that is quite different from
the approach to morality that is characteristic of ethics. Although ethics is a normative study of
ethics, the social sciences engage in a descriptive study of ethics.
