As we have seen in our readings, ethical dilemmas within companies can have various forms, such as gender inequality (paying a man more than a woman for the same work), embezzling, privacy breaches, and inappropriate use of social media, just to name a few. In this assignment, you should consider a suitable company-wide ethical dilemma and discuss why you believe it is a problem and how you would remedy the dilemma. This exercise provides the opportunity for reflecting on ethical issues in the workplace and helps you to better understand their impact and how fixing the issue can benefit everyone.
Instructions
You will first need to identify a current or potential ethical dilemma in a company. This could be a company where you are now employed, a former employer, a friend’s company, or another company that had an ethical dilemma that you may have read about in the news. The issue should also be something that needs to be addressed with an organizational policy inside the company, such as harassment, discrimination, embezzlement, or fraud. In other words, you believe that a policy change would be better than other courses of action (such as disciplinary action toward an individual employee, or external action by the government or a nonprofit) to remedy the issue. You do not have to create a policy at this time, but you just need to explain why implementing a policy would be the right choice to address the situation or issue.
For example, a company may choose to videotape the office and read employee e-mails, so what’s the big deal? The conflict in this example could be that employees feel these practices are a violation of privacy and they feel entitled to a certain level of privacy. However, company owners and stakeholders defend these practices on the premise that they are ensuring employees are remaining productive and getting their work done.
Follow these steps to complete your assignment. For all of these steps, make sure you provide examples and information from credible sources to support your writing and claims:
Step 1: Analyze an ethical dilemma that needs to be addressed.
-Describe the current ethical dilemma and how it affects various stakeholders.
-Explain how the ethical dilemma warrants a company to take the time to address it. 
-Explain the implications of not addressing the ethical issue.
Step 2: Analyze the different methods for resolving the ethical dilemma.
-Describe the different ethical methods that are available to be used.
-Explain how these methods can be applied to resolve the ethical dilemma.
-Explain the ramifications and consequences of not addressing the ethical dilemma.
Step 3: Recommend an appropriate method to address the ethical dilemma.
-Explain how the organization can fix and address the dilemma.
-Explain why you think your recommendations are appropriate and the right approach to addressing the specific dilemma.
Step 4: Describe how a specific ethical dilemma corresponds with larger issues on a regional, national, or global level.
-Discuss how this specific dilemma could impact policies and regulations on a larger scale.
-Incorporate the ramifications and consequences (discussed in Step 2) with your description of how the ethical dilemma could impact all levels.
Written communication: Write in complete sentences free from errors that detract from the overall message. Communicate in an exemplary and professional manner through clear, concise, well-organized, and grammatically correct writing

Assignment: Read the Fort Worth Star-Telegram newspaper article at “Family of baby on life support at Cook Children’s files appeal to keep her alive” at https://www.star-telegram.com/news/local/fort-worth/article239358418.html (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
Article Summary: This article addresses a Texas state court legal battle between the family of 10-month-old baby Tinslee Lewis and the Cook Children’s Hospital when the hospital’s Medical Ethics Committee acted to remove the child’s life-sustaining care after determining her medical conditions are terminal and continued care is only causing unnecessary suffering. Texas law, specifically Section 166.046 of the Texas Advance Directives Act, allows an ethics committee to choose to end treatment if doctors determine care is futile or medically inappropriate. Tinslee Lewis’ mother is challenging this state law as a violation of the baby’s Due Process rights under the federal Constitution. While the hospital ethics committee had sufficient state law legal authority to act the way they did, it raises significant ethical (as well as personal moral) issues and concerns.
Questions: Should the costs of continued, but potentially futile, medical care be a factor in a hospital’s ethics committee’s decision-making process? Why or why not? Does the State of Texas (or any state) have a legitimate interest in reducing healthcare costs and making services available to others? State why and be specific. What three Universal Values in Ethical Decision-Making relevant to this decision-making process should the MEC have considered and why? What two ethical decision-making model(s) should the MEC considered by the ethics committee and why? In your opinion, did the hospital’s MEC get it right in this case? Why or why not?
Ensure you completely address and answer all the above discussion requirements.

Find an ethical problem or issue in a profession in which you are interested or that you expect to enter yourself.
Part 1
Present a summary explanation and/or analysis of the ethical problem(s) or issue(s), presenting the various sides of the conflict, and, if possible, the differing opinions that have been given about it.
