Ethical Issues in the Workplace
The company that I am going to discuss is not a fiction based company but it is not my place of employment. I would have loved to discuss the company I am employed with but I do not see or hear of any ethics violations.
Chick Fila is a known nationally known fast food restaurant. As we all know when a company grows and management changes some changes happens that tends to be what we consider ethical issues. This particular Chick Fila that I am going to discuss a relative of mine is currently employed there. He often complains to me about some issues that goes on there. Initially when he started complaining I thought he was just being another young man that is never satisfied with his work life. As time passed I began to realize they were legitimate complaints.
Some of the issued he has are strict dress code, unfair treatment between employees and managers and lastly perceived racism. The dress code complaints are more based on management being a bit tedious. In a company like Chick Fila why does it matter what color socks you wear or if you decide to wear a undershirt under your work shirt? I understand that a company needs uniformity to keep up appearances but I cannot understand why that would matter in a fast food restaurant. Unfair treatment; at no time should an employee become belligerent or disrespectful to a supervisor. If you have been employed there for a while it seems as if you are untouchable when being asked to perform specific tasks. There have been cases where employees have gotten loud and disrespectful to the management staff. When asked to clock out they simply call the General Manager and is allowed to remain on the clock. This causes strife between employees as well as the management staff. It seems as if the Mexicans always a placed on the kitchen staff; in some ways it seems a bit racist. When hired they are immediately placed in the kitchen.
With the issues being noted there...
