In a world where tolerance is prioritized, business ethics and standards can be hard to define, navigate and apply to the HR context. This course helps students identify and understand current ethical issues as they pertain to business in general and the HR function in particular, including concept of corporate social responsibility. Students will explore the drafting and implementation of employee codes and conduct, which cover safeguarding employee confidentiality, accepting gifts, protection of "whistle-blowers' and conflicts of interest, as well as fair labour policies. Through the analysis of principles and theories of ethics as well as ethical dilemmas faced in the workplace, students will be better prepared to examine current decision-making processes and HR practices in the workplace.
