The ethical actor in this problem is me as the CFO because I have now been given the information to make a decision about the situation. Stakeholders: 1. The accounting department: may be distracted or feel uncomfortable 2. Homeless woman: consider that we are helping her 3. Community: depending on our actions their view of our company could change 4. Shareholders: an extra expense and could reduce productivity Assumptions: - I am assuming that the company does not consider helping this homeless woman as a charity or donation. - I am assuming that the secretary has done all she could to handle this situation before coming to me. The issue with this problem is determining if it is best for the whole company if we ask this homeless woman to stop using our facilities. -Sensibility is in tension because you want to help a homeless person but then again you have to consider the comfort level of the employees. - Autonomity is in tension because if you help this one homeless woman then will more of the homeless community attempt to come into our facilities. - Rationality is in tension because although this is an easy way to give back to the community it may not be the most ethical or beneficial option. Requesting that the homeless woman should leave would meet the rights of the employees to feel comfortable in their work environment. Another right we have to consider is that this woman is using company supplies and is causing an extra expense to the company as a whole. This option will not look that good to the general public. It looks like we are just pushing someone who could use our help away.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
