Legal & Ethical Issues in Management
The Problem-Solution Analysis Paper, refer to the Donn Milton, Dr., v. IIT Research Institute. ( I will upload the case)
After reading the case, answer the following questions:
1.What does employment-at-will mean?
2.In legal terms, why did Milton lose his case?
3.The court here expresses concern that, if Dr. Milton were permitted to win, it would open a “Pandora’s box,” with “every corporate officer fired in the wake of a disagreement over an employer’s business practices” a potential successful plaintiff. Do you agree or disagree? Why?
4.Take a look at Montana’s “Wrongful Discharge from Employment Act”. ( I will upload the case as well) How do you believe Dr. Milton would have fared under this Act?
5.Would the SOX law have protected Dr. Donn Milton? Why or Why not?
6.Public policy tort actions for wrongful discharge have been allowed in a number of different situations. Discuss each of these situations.
Your responses to the questions posed should be in paragraph format.
