Project #60058 - ethics

Learning Activitities

 

1. Most employers these days use online job applications, with no provision for paper or in-person application. As students sophisticated in the use of computer technology, this seems normal and appropriate to you. You are unaware of the "digital divide". Poorer, older, less sophisticated persons in the US and elsewhere simply do not have access or do not have the knowledge as to how to apply online. So you say - well they should not get the job.  What about the following: A fifty year old maintennace man returning to the work force after battling cancer. He has a family to support and no knowledge of computers. There are jobs available for which he is qualified but they all require an online application. Is this fair?

2. Privacy is a major concern. Should a government agency in the US regulate what companies do with your profile for marketing purposes? Note from your readings that in Europe this is very well regulated and a company might be fined for sharing marketing information. Should the University of Maryland "sell" you name, postal address, major, and email address to marketers? What if by selling such information, tuition costs are kept from rising? 

3. Should an employer be able to read your private emails just because you sent an email using your work computer. Should a private employer be able to listen in on or tape your private phone calls just because you used the phone at work? Is there a difference, ethically, between a phone and a computer in this context? Are there other ways to monitor employee misuse than this invasion of privacy?
