Managers as Judges in Employee Disputes: An Occasion for Moral Imagination

Business Ethics Quarterly 13 (4):453-477 (2003)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Abstract:Employee-employee conflicts are common occasions for managerial intervention. In judging such disputes, managers bring to encounters a frame that is not conducive to employee due process. Making managers aware of their legal responsibilities in resolving employee disputes is a poor substitute for managers’ understanding and implementation of their ethical due process obligations. Moreover, moral imagination is necessary in order to counter the effects of the managerial frame that employees are either not worthy of due process protections or that such protections are not a priority.
