I’m working on a business writing question and need support to help me learn.
Ethical Decision-Making Assignment (BLAW 618)
Purpose of this assignment:
This assignment involves creating an “Ethical Toolbox” and then using the “tools” from your Ethical Toolbox to analyze an ethical dilemma you faced in the last several years. Please write a response to the following prompts below in a maximum of five (5) pages total; the first page shall be the Ethical Toolbox and the last four (4) pages shall be an essay analyzing your ethical dilemma.
1. You will create an Ethical Toolbox on the first page of this assignment, which shall be your souvenir from this class. The Ethical Toolbox will be a reminder for yourself of the tools that will help you analyze future ethical dilemmas.
The Ethical Toolbox should be entitled “When Facing an Ethical Dilemma, I
Will . . .” Complete this sentence by adding the questions and factors you should consider when analyzing future ethical dilemmas. Preferably, your Ethical Toolbox will incorporate the four-step Ethical Decision-Making Model and some of the factors (i.e. whether you would likely regret your decision, whether you would be violating the law, how you would want to be treated if you were in a similar situation, etc.) you think are important to consider from the “Business Ethics” VoiceThread lecture. You may also use information from materials outside this course. Please be creative in the way you structure this document, and you may use any font size or style.
2. Apply your Ethical Toolbox to a personal ethical dilemma you faced by writing an essay in a maximum of four (4) double-spaced pages using (12) point, Times New Roman font, responding to the following prompts:
a. Tell me about an ethical dilemma that you faced at work or school in the last several years. Describe the facts surrounding the ethical dilemma as if you are currently facing the situation.
b. Analyze the ethical dilemma described above as if you are currently facing the dilemma using the questions and/or factors from your Ethical Toolbox. This section of the paper should end with the appropriate action you should take regarding the dilemma.
c. Given that you faced this ethical dilemma in the past, please explain the choice or action you actually took regarding the dilemma. Do you wish you would have handled the ethical dilemma differently? What have you learned?
