People from all walks of life face many ethical dilemmas. These dilemmas have consequences. Our worldview determines how we deal with these dilemmas, and guides us to the right decisions. In this essay, I will examine an ethical issues through my Christian worldview. I will also present other viewpoints, and compare them to mine.
In the first test case, George recently just has gotten his PhD in Chemistry and is having a tough time in landing a job. It is made clear that George is an elderly man who is not robust in health thus reducing the number of jobs that he is able to do. Because of this, George’s wife must go out and work to support him and their smaller children which is stressful enough since they have issues in looking after them in which causes damaging effects on the children. However, George is faced with an opportunity to get a job with a decent pay to work in a laboratory which pursues research into biological and chemical warfare. George is against chemical and biological warfare and he wants to refuse the job. The issue is made clear that George’s refusal will not make the laboratory or job go away and there is person interested in the job and if he were appointed he would most likely push the research with greater zeal than George. George was offered the job by
According to the residents, pesticides are the main cause of increasing number of child death rate in the area. Mcfarland and Earlimart are small communities who are not engaged in lot of activities. Victim’s parents have been examined and most of them reported it is caused by pesticides whereas some residents living have reported that no such incident has been observed in their families. Their main occupation is agriculture in the farms where pesticide is being used. They have reported contamination of water is also one of the reasons for the cancer. The case unfolds the number of cases which happened with the people throughout the period. They also reported that in spite of informing the harmful effect of the pesticides to their boss .To which no action has been taken instead their interference in such matter would a reason of them to be fired from the job.
In this case scenario I would do my job and give them out to the families that have a limited income and cannot afford them. If one sees that they are coming to the expiration date soon then I would believe that it is okay to take them home then, but these samples are for those less fortunate. It is ethically correct to not take the samples home unless they are about to expire and be wasted, but only then. Legally it is not yours to take home it is for the patients.
Ethical Dilemma 1 This situation is definitely one that is an ethical dilemma. Evan is the business dean at Youngtown Community College. He has made the decision to modify the recruitment, selection and hiring process to replace Art by hiring David who is unqualified for the position. David wants this position once he completes his Master’s degree, but currently he only has his Bachelor’s degree.
I don’t consider Robs choice justified because he based his decisions on Cathy being a smoker. His personal views on smoking should not be dictate who is the best candidate. I understand that he dislikes smoking, sees it as disgusting, sign of weakness of character and the impact it could have on health insurance but other health factors could cause the same thing. Both Cathy and Jen had the same amount of experience, references and interviewed well.

Moss argues that an outside person should get the promotion instead of Bryant because the person is a less risky candidate than Bryant. I will argue that his argument fails and is morally impermissible. I will begin by stating his argument. Then I will state my objections to his claims. Then I will discuss possible objections from him and I will show why they fail.
If he does not take the job, it is decidedly worse for the general good as he would be giving up the job to someone with high aspirations to develop the field of chemical and biological warfare. This is a danger to society. In taking the job, George is providing his family with a healthier living and also, as a result of his lack of enthusiasm, he is slowing down the progress of chemical and biological warfare projects. In this way, utilitarianism is showing that integrity is meaningless. These similar ideas are expressed in Williams' second example.
When it comes to employee Bill Graves I believe that it would not be a great business decision to go out and hire Bill as a new bus driver. After interviewing Bill honestly I do believe Bill could be a great candidate for the bus driving job but I don’t believe Bill is the best for the job. When I think about the Job description for a bus driver they would include things like:
Let 's consider this scenario, Jill a 45-year-old woman and vice president of sale in a family owned mid-sized candy corporation have an ethical dilemma in regard to recommending Henry, William Potter oldest son to the position of C.E.O.
Likewise, a job that follows the utilitarianism beliefs is not a good job. The utilitarianism definition of happiness is the greatest ratio of pleasure to pain. In utilitarianism individual’s happiness rarely matter so even if you, despise your job, there could possibly be more pleasure than pain in certain situations and then a utilitarian would see it as a good job. A job is a huge element of everyone’s life, so its ability to create happiness for the job holder is extremely important. If a man gets a job that will provide his family of six with income and the necessities to survive, this situation will create more happiness than if a single man with no family or friends got the job. It doesn’t matter how much the single man would love that job or how good he would be at it because six happy people is greater than one. In my eyes that is not a good job because even though the father receives pleasure from being able to provide for his family, the job itself provides him with no
There are many ethical dilemmas that an industrial engineer may face throughout their career. One major dilemma would be having to lay someone off because of a change you may have made to a process to make it more efficient. Industrial engineers are always trying to find a more efficient way of doing something, whether it’s in a factory, in an office, or the route of a delivery driver. Sometimes these things aren’t always as simple as they may seem. There are often consequences to these seemingly simple changes. People can and do get laid off because of a change to a process.
