business ethics discussion 24

Theme 1 – Safety/Civility

One of our readings this week was related to an off the field incident involving Kareem Hunt, formerly of the Kansas City Chiefs. There has been many incidents involving athletes in recent years, which typically results in varying punishment. Do you think a business should be able to punish an employee for actions they take in their personal lives? Why or why not? Support your response.

Theme 2 – Freedom From Discrimination

This theme is split into illegal discrimination and legal discrimination. Detail one of your readings in each category and explain why you feel it is important to have laws against discrimination as well as laws that allow for discrimination in certain circumstances.
