LAW 531 Ethical and Criminal Responsibility Paper
The purpose of this individual assignment is to have the student evaluate the legal moral and ethical responsibilities running from an employer to an employee in a business situation involving sexual assault. This assignment will require the student to engage in critical thinking and apply tort elements and concepts to this scenario. Review the Ethics in Action scenario in Chapter 7 of your text.
Write a paper of not more than 1050 words in which you answer the following questions: Does an employer have an ethical obligation to take corrective or preventative action when the employer knows or has reason to know that the employee poses a danger to others? Does it matter whether the employer has irrefutable evidence that the employee poses a danger to others or whether the employer has only a reasonable suspicion to that effect? If an employer has an ethical obligation to take corrective or preventative action to whom does that obligation extend and what should that obligation entail? Does the employer owe any ethical obligation to the employee in such situations? What potential torts are demonstrated in the scenario? Analyze any potential criminal liability for the employer and the employee.
