find a real case based upon the topic you selected. The case can be taken from your own workplace or from another employment setting. The scenario should have occurred within the past 2 years. If you are not employed or have no prior work experience, you can consider your job as that of student or you can research a case online. The assignment must be written in your own words, and you must acknowledge any source that you use, following APA documentation guidelines.
A case study analysis is an opportunity to demonstrate your understanding of ethical theory, principles, and ethical reasoning.
Background of the Real Case
State the background of the case including its context, its origin, and any other important details. Summarize briefly what happened (the facts—who, what, when, where, why, how) (Note: If you choose a case from your personal experience, you may change the names to maintain confidentiality.) What is the history of the problem? Who is involved? Is there any missing information? This narrative section should be no more than one double-spaced page.
Here is an example from the topic of the Messy Office.
I work in an office building with 10 coworkers, three of whom have messy desks, which have gotten even messier over the past year, thanks in part to the company’s adoption of Uber Eats for Business at the end of last year. Our office arrangement is an open setting with no cubicles and shared work areas. The team, which includes Larry, Anup, Mike, and me, along with the others, works long hours, especially during some seasons or when quarterly or special reports are due.
During these busy times, our supervisor manages food delivery for us through the Uber Eats for Business program. Often that means she orders for our team bagels and coffee in the morning, food for a quick lunch break, snacks during the day, or late night meals at the office with Uber Eats delivering such things as sushi and Chinese, Thai, and Indian food from local restaurants.
Although I appreciate the generosity, I find the aroma from the various cuisines distracting when I’m trying to concentrate on a tough problem, but the worst part is that my three team members who eat at their desks seem to be oblivious to the fact that they are dropping crumbs and not keeping a clean workspace. Crumbs get lodged between keys of the computers and sticky fingers have left their marks on the shared printers and copiers. Most likely, these practices are encouraging the growth of millions of bacteria, but I’ve said nothing. Should I wait until someone comes down with an E. coli illness? Evidence of mice and rats has been recently observed in the building.
That’s not the only mess in the office either. Anup has books and papers stacked three shelves high on her desk, which could avalanche onto someone if an earthquake were to rock the building or a manual were to be pulled off quickly onto the pile of papers below. Larry keeps a large box of cold cereal right by his desk, and Mike has his favorite signs, stickers, and photos posted around his desk as if he were a living Facebook page. A communal candy dish sits on the table where meetings are held, and Anup leaves candy that nobody really seems to want. I like my coworkers very much and do not want to hurt their feelings. What should be done about the messy office?
you are to identify the ethical dilemma(s) in the case you chose and apply ethical theory to analyze and resolve the problem(s) you identified in the case.
Note: You are being graded on your demonstration of reasoning, critical thinking, and analytical abilities in applying what you are learning about ethical issues in the professions. You will be using your text and outside sources of information, so please provide in-text citations and references using APA formatting.
Make an initial estimation of the ethical dilemma present, that is, what the core issues are in the case. What is the main ethical conflict or problem? Describe the key ethical dilemma in one or two sentences or in a “should” question.
Application of Ethical Theory
Use at least three ethical theories (Kant’s deontological theory, John Stuart Mill’s teleological theory/utilitarianism/consequentialism, Aristotle’s virtue-based approach, John Rawl’s theory of justice, or your own theory) to analyze and resolve the problem. How would each ethicist explain the ethical problem and resolve it? This section should be at least two pages and headings should be used to identify each of the three theories. Cite all sources using APA documentation.
Choose one of the available choices and write a two-page Word document (.docx) outlining the rationale for your answer. You should include principles that you have learned so far in this course. Be sure to provide adequate information to support your answer.
