MGT301A: Ethics and Sustainability

Assessment 1: Discussion Forum Post

One day when I was working with a local health facility, the garbage collector failed to turn up for the week and the garbage was piling. As it was my day to clean, the manager approached me about the piling garbage and instructed me to put it in a bag and dump it in nearby pit where most locals dumped their garbage. I declined because I considered it risky for others and was summoned to his office and given my first warning for insubordination.

I had two actions to consider. One, I considered following the manager’s order and dump the garbage there because it was an eyesore also to me.

Context
This assessment provides an opportunity for you to begin to explore how ethics have played
a part in your professional life. You will have the opportunity to focus on one situation and
analyse it from a range of ethical perspectives with the aim of understanding:
(a) how ethics is part of your day-to-day professional practice, and
(b) how your current thinking about ethical issues influences your professional practice.
You will develop the skill to identify and describe an ethical issue, articulate the various
choices you have available to you and discuss how you determine what actions you should
take. You will also develop your written skills by presenting a coherent description of an event,
demonstrating the capacity to reflect on your behaviour.
The assignment will help you to develop an ‘ethical mindset’ when making workplace
decisions and learn to identify the ethical frameworks that inform those decisions.
Instructions
Post
This post should be around 250 words. It should include:
 A very short description of a workplace event where you had to make an ethical
decision (100 words). (Examples of the type of event you might write about will be
discussed in class).
 A reflection on how you made the decision to act in the way you did (150 words). The
following questions might help your reflection:
o What alternative actions did you consider?

o Why did you choose one action rather than another?
o What factors did you consider in making the choice?
 Identification of two ethical frameworks (chosen from the 6 frameworks discussed in
Module 2.1), that could have helped you with your ethical decision. These should
include a reference to a two relevant books or journal articles that are not part of
