Ethical Theory, Business Practice, and the Corpora

posted by .

Speedy Motors Company (SMC) gave less than a month notice before they laid off nearly 2,000 workers and closed the facility. This facility had been providing jobs for the community for over 20 years.

Terms of the close - what notice would you give, what benefits would you provide, etc.

2. Describe all of the affected stakeholders and how their interests will be considered.

3. Who do you propose should take primary responsibility for those laid off as a result of the plant closing?

4. How will this news be communicated to the workers, press, and community?




This sounds exciting..I will be happy to critique your thinking. This is an excellent case in which the immediate company needs are an antithesis of community needs.
