HA3300D – Healthcare Policy and Ethics
Discussion 08: Harassment
In Chapter 10 of your textbook, you explored the relationship between organizational culture and ethics. Keep this reading in mind as you respond to the following case study:
You are the director of a radiology department. During a routine individual meeting with one of your male staff, the employee tells you that a female employee has been making suggestive remarks to him, and occasionally grabbed and fondled him in a sexual manner. He said he asked her several times to stop this behavior as he was married and did not appreciate the behavior, particularly in a work setting. The behavior continued anyway. The male employee asks you not to report this further because he did not want to get the female employee in trouble and he brought it up only for ideas how to make her stop it.
Consider these questions in your 8 – 10 sentence discussion board post:
.What are your ethical obligations?
.What ethical theories apply to your situation, and why?
.Does the work of Carol Gilligan change how we should respond in this scenario? Why or why not?
Your initial post should be a minimum of 8 – 10 sentences and include an APA-style references list to ensure full credit.
