CASE STUDY ASSIGNMENT (3 PAGES)<The case study shall be based on a real-wor

The case study shall be based on a real-world ethical situation you have personally encountered and about which you, personally, had to make an ethical decision. The case study format must include the following elements:<
A. Title of the case<
B. Facts regarding the case <
C. A one-sentence statement of the ethical problem (If you cannot reduce the problem down to one sentence, you probably do not fully understand the problem, or it may not be an ethical problem at all. Generally, most problems can be reduced down to lying, cheating, or stealing, or some variation thereof.)<
D. Possible alternative responses and/or solutions to the ethical problem that were available to you <
i. Describe each alternative response and/or solution fully<
ii. Analyze each alternative response and/or solution giving the advantages/disadvantages; pros/cons of each <
E. Give your recommended alternative and the reasons for choosing it. This alternative may or may not have been the one you chose in the real world. If it was not the one chosen, please explain why you would act differently today. <
The case studies shall be based on a real-world ethical situation that you have personally encountered. It must be about an ethical problem that you, personally, had to solve; not one that was solved, or should have been solved, by someone else. For example, do not discuss whether it is ethical for the NBA to draft players right out of high school unless you work for the NBA or were drafted by the NBA right out of high school. Do not discuss how you were treated unethically by others unless that unethical treatment forced you to make an ethical decision yourself. Do not discuss an ethical problem that should have been solved by your employer. The ethical problem must be one that you, personally, had to solve, not one that your employer should have solved. <
The purpose of the case study is for you to review a real ethical problem you actually encountered and to examine how you handled it. Therefore, please choose a case study that actually happened to you. Do not pick an ethical problem that does not apply to you. It is easy to solve other people’s ethical problems, it is not so easy to solve your own. Therefore, do not choose a case study unless it required you to personally make an ethical decision. Do not, for example, describe an ethical problem in your workplace or in your profession and then recommend that your employer or the industry within which you work should correct the problem. It has to be a problem that forced you to make an ethical decision. The assignment is intended to give you the opportunity to review how you make ethical decisions, not to review how someone else makes ethical decisions.<
