Axia College Material Appendix C Ethical Decisions Scenario Analysis For each of the following scenarios answer the questions and explain whether your answers fit with traditional or modern ethical thinking. After you have finished responding to the scenarios, discuss whether you generally make ethical decisions using a traditional or a modern ethical model. Provide an example using an experience you have had in your daily life. Scenario One You are a manager at your current company. You receive a call requesting a character reference for an employee you know to be unreliable and dishonest but who has not broken any rule directly. a. What should you tell the prospective employer? b. What type of information would you tell the prospective employer? c. How would what you share be to your advantage or disadvantage? Response to Questions a. I would have to choose my words very carefully because the person in question had not broke n any rules so I would want to avoid any legal action . I would tell the prospective employer anything that would be legal for me to say. b. I would let the prospective employer know the person in question was not reliable. If the prospective employer asked about the reliability problem I would only offer information that could be proven. Then again the person in question may not have been reliable because he/she may not have been happy with their job they had with my company. As far as the dishonesty I would only mention it if I had prove of it.

    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.
