Mr. X worked in the human resources department that was interviewing applicants for a top job in a widget company. After reading many applications, one stood out way ahead of the others. Then he realized that he knew the applicant, Mr. Y. They had hung out together when they were teenagers. Mr. Y had been a wild kid and once was arrested for shoplifting and the possession of drugs. Mr. Y had completed mandatory counseling and, as far as Mr. X knew, Mr. Y had straightened out his life and had done well during the last twenty years. Mr. Y hadn’t indicated in his application that he had once been arrested and Mr. X feared that the company would never hire someone with a police record, no matter how minor or how long ago the offence was. Do you favor Mr. X revealing the information?10 Marks

Mentor’s comment-

  • In the introduction you can explain briefly the demand of the case study.
  • In the body identify the ethical questions involved in the case study first.
    Explain what are the possible approaches that are available to resolve the situation.
    Explain that global ethics and professional standards demand one to always act with integrity.
    Being open and transparent are key to ethics at work.
    Explain what the concerns are if Mr.X holds the information and doesn’t call out for it.
  • You can conclude by suggesting a suitable middle path and conclude with a balanced solution
