      [QLD] Workplace ethics

      As with other professions, HR management confronts a number of difficult issues and dilemmas concerning ethics, roles, practices and the nature of its professional association. HR professionals increasingly need to address complex ethical issues in the workplace as part of their role. More and more organisations are making explicit the standards of behaviour expected in the workplace, and often HR are charged with ensuring that these standards are met and are tasked with dealing with the situation when these standards are breached. This can give rise to some complex situations that may be extremely difficult to manage. While the basics of ethical conduct can be quite simple, the application can be difficult because in real-life it often involves complex dilemmas. This course looks at the role HR plays in managing ethics within the organisational context and uses a case based approach to consider ways in which HR manages ethical dilemmas.
