At Bat
1. In this scenario those that are affected are the Muslim employees that are under the management of Hindus. Not only are the Muslim employees are affected but so is Javier because he cannot work without seeing the glass ceiling when it came to promotions and seeing how they are blaming the Muslims for drop of earnings. 2. The likely consequence if Javier doesn’t say anything is probably that the Hindu management will probably attempt to fire the Muslim employees in order to cover their hide. They would probably replace these Muslim employees with Hindu employers. 3. Maybe there might be rights but then again it is an Indian Software company in India and they might not treat these situations the same in other countries. If Javier speaks up and says something then his job could be at stake. 4. The principles that are involved are prejudice, racism and maybe religious aspects that may be involved. Based on their ethnicity the Muslims are not provided with the ability to be promoted. 5. The implications on behalf of Javier are that he will probably say something on behalf of what he has seen so far. They haven’t treated him wrongly because of his ethnicity but he has built close friendship with his Muslim friend al-Arabi. To Act or Not to Act?

1. In reality no one is really affected if the upper level managers of color are not offended or concerned by the location. If they do become offended then the ones who would be affected would be them. 2. The likely consequences is possibly talking with the CEO and changing the location of the retreat just to avoid offending anyone. 3. Only of they are offended do they have a right to protest and ask to have the location removed especially if they acknowledge the importance of the place as a cotton plantation owned by a slave owner. Then again they shouldn’t be offended because slavery has been done with for a number of years now. 4. One of the principles to take into account is the principle of human dignity. John Davis is being fair with considering every employee who is going to this retreat to make everyone comfortable and not send a wrong message to its management core. 5. I think that John Davis is really a good man and he did talk with the upper level managers to see if this retreat would offend them. If it would offend them then he would talk with the CEO and have the location changed. If they were not offended and it was ok with them then I assume that they stayed in the same location. The Restaurant Business

1. John Hanson and his business is the one affected because Tom Barbour had the nerve to keep such an issue as a secret. 2. The likely consequences is that Hanson will fire Barbour for lying by hiding the fact that he had Aids and because he could have infected many customers and employees because of his sickness. It would have ruined the business of Hanson if someone did contract the Aids infection. 3. The only duties at stake are the reputation of the restaurant once he has to explain to his employees and customers on why he had to fire Barbour. If Barbour has any right it’s the right to be able to work in the occupation that he loves. 4. The principles that are involved is the fact that you will be ending the career of someone who has helped you build your restaurants reputation. Another principle in play is the health of your customers and your employers because the chefs are constantly cutting and nicking themselves with sharp knives. 5. The implications is that Hanson is a good manager and that he wants to let Barbour have his job but he also doesn’t want to risk having one of his employers or customers contract the disease. I believe that he will confront Barbour and maybe help him in some other way without him being the head chef anymore. Hiring Choices
