TEXTBOOK:

Shaw, William H. (2014). Business ethics (8th ed.). Boston, MA: Wadsworth, Cengage Learning.


Case 9.1: Unprofessional Conduct?Located on page 342 of your textbook

  1. Do you believe the Board of Education violated her right to privacy? Were they justified in firing her? Explain two to three (2-3) major reasons why or why not.

  2. Was Pettit’s behavior unprofessional or immoral? Do you believe she was unfit to teach? Provide a rationale for your position.

  3. If teachers have good performance inside the classroom, should they also be held to a higher moral standard outside the classroom? Explain why or why not. 

  4. Analyze five (5) behaviors you believe would show unprofessional or immoral conduct for a teacher.

Case 8.4: Have Gun, Will Travel…to WorkLocated on page 312 of your textbook

  1. Do you have not only a legal, but a moral right to own a gun? Do you believe that you have either a moral or a legal right to park a car with a loaded gun in a privately owned parking lot, regardless of what the lot’s owner wants?

  2. In your view, do employees have either a moral or a legal right to park cars with guns in them in the company parking lot? What do you believe should be the property rights and safety concerns of employers?

  3. Do you think state legislatures are right to get involved, or should the matter be left to companies and employees to settle? 

  4. Because the workplace is the company’s private property, the company could choose to allow employees to bring guns not only into the parking lot, but also into the workplace itself. Are there ever circumstances in which doing so might be reasonable? Or would the presence of guns automatically violate the rights of other employees to be guaranteed a safe working environment?

Grading for this assignment will be based on answer quality, logic / organization of the paper, and language and writing skills, using the following rubric.
