In recent months you have been working very long hours and spending a considerable amount of time away from your family.
In recent months you have been working very long hours and spending a considerable amount of time away from your family. However, you have taken two weeks off after the Christmas period and have promised your partner you will be enjoying some quality time with your family during the break. However, on the second day of your holiday you receive a message on your phone that your boss would like you to come into the office as something important has come up in relation to a proposal you have been working on - it sounds like this could make a serious dent into your time off. You have some concerns about job security given the economic crisis and have heard rumours that your company will be laying people off soon.
What would you do? What ethical considerations would you give to your decision-making? Why? Why not?
We encourage you to post your answers in the comments so we can create a healthy discussion, with the aim of learning from our peers, becoming aware of differing perspectives and challenging our own biases.
If you would like to submit an ethical dilemma to feature in an upcoming weekly challenge please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
