selective about the people to whom they entrust the promotion of their business” (Sect.5.3). The principle is called “at will hiring” and gives companies the freedom to hire, not hire, or release an individual from employment without needing a reason. I think one of the entities that have had a hand in the problem that lead to the lawsuit in the Abercrombie and Fitch case is the corporation themselves, Abercrombie’s “look policy” of not allowing caps to be worn is a relation to the advertising of the company and the image or brand they would like to sell to the public. The fact that an employee selling their clothing is wearing a ballcap, a visor, a cowboy hat or a headscarf should have no impact on the merchandise itself. The “look policy” is a way for the corporation to hide behind a manufactured law to make assessments about those they wish to hire. Abercrombie’s actions go against Kant’s categorical imperative by failing to “treat persons with respect and without denying them dignity or autonomy” Zúñiga y Postigo, (2015). The hiring employees is acting under the influence of a set of rules, rather than doing what is morally right and making a capable decision based on “what’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong” References Fieser, J. (2015). Introduction to business ethics [Electronic version]. Retrieved from Zúñiga y Postigo, G. (2015). The moral good in three traditional ethical theories

    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.
