Ethical Dilemmas

Submitted by • May 29, 2013

An annoyed worker in a competitor reveals confidential information about a new product.As outlined earlier, an action is considered morally permissible if its consequences are beneficial. On the other hand, a morally impermissible action encompasses an action whose outcomes are undesirable. Even if the company’s production process conforms to EPA regulations, the outcomes are hazardous to the surrounding communities. As a result, even though the company’s production is ethical, the outcomes are morally impermissible. Based on ethical principles, the permissibility of an action should be assessed based on the doer’s intentions. (Singer, p. 97)
