Assignment: Legal and Ethical Responsibilities
To prepare for this assignment:
Managers are like jugglers, keeping an eye on various aspects of an organization and making sure that activities stay in motion and do not crash to the ground. One area of focus should be the legal and ethical implications that can occur when interacting with employees. Consider what you learned from the Learning Resources regarding your legal and ethical responsibilities to employees, children, and families.
Submit a 2- to 3-page paper that includes a response to the following:
- Why is it important for a manager to be aware of both legal and ethical risks that may occur in the work environment?
- What legal and ethical risks do you believe would be important to share with your employees? How might you communicate the information and keep it at the forefront of everyone’s minds?
- What role does the human resources manager or department play with regard to legal and ethical considerations in the workplace? What sorts of resources can they provide?
