FINAL EXAM - Ethics 316

In 750 to 1,050 words, write a paper and set out what you believe the virtue ethics position to be in this case. Then evaluate whether you agree with this solution or not based upon personal worldview or community worldview tenets. Make your reasons very explicit. Be sure to highlight which virtues you think are at stake and why one will trump the other.

Case: You are a sales manager in an insurance company. One of your employees, Sandy Boyd, wrote a life insurance contract on a career office worker, William Ling. William was suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome so Sandy signed the application for him in his name. This is contrary to company policy. If the underwriters had known of William's condition, they may have asked for further underwriting information in order to determine whether William was an acceptable risk. In fact, William had an associated condition (unknown to him at the time) that later required treatment and as a result, went badly. The treatment for this condition was such that William was hospitalized, and after his operation sepsis set in and killed him.

The life insurance money would help his family (otherwise destitute), but there is the issue of possible fraud on the part of Sandy. The company decided to pay the claim, but has issued a request for an investigation that now stares you in the face. Sandy has worked for the company for twenty years and has never had a complaint before. But now her decision to sign an application for someone else so that it didn't arouse suspicion has perhaps cost the company $75,000 (the face value of the life policy).

What do you do? Turn Sandy over to the police (fraud is a crime)? Fire Sandy? Admonish Sandy so that it makes an impact on her salary? Give Sandy a slap on the wrist? Ignore the whole thing? Base your response upon virtue ethics.

Your paper should be in APA style, with at least two references, and in-text citations. No abstract is required. Please allow sufficient time to check your paper against the Plagiarism checker and WritePoint/Grammarly. I recommend that you not wait until the end of the week to begin working on this.
