  1. 1. MBA Corporate Ethics Forum National Taiwan University of Science and Technology Homework and Exercise NTUST MBA Forum of “Managing Business Decision Ethically” Topics: The Layoff: An Easy Job? Your Painful Decision Last to Come Suppose: ‧ You’re the plant manager in one of ABC Company’s five plants. You’ve worked for the company over 15 years, working your way up from the factory floor after the company sent you to college. ‧ Your boss just told you in complete confidence that the company will have to layoff 200 workers. ‧ Luckily, your job won’t be affected. ‧ But, a rumor is now circulating in the plant and one of your workers (an old friend) asks you“Is the plant closing? Am I going to lose job? I’ve got a kid in college,. I need to know! What will you say? Question: ‧ This is a true ethical dilemma, because two values are in conflict. Two “right" values that can create the significant conflicts are “truth and loyalty”. ‧ Telling the truth to your friend means that you have to break your promise to be loyal to the company that has treated you so well. ‧ Now, you are the manager, how will you deal with this ethical dilemma by applying rational method or tools? Note: None of the approaches or solutions is perfect. The purpose of this case is to get you to think carefully and to find a good way into a solution. huang.prof@gmail.com 2008/10/4
