A look into the ethical and legal responsibilities of today’s human resources professional. Our discussion will delve into the difference between the ethical duty to do something versus the legal responsibility to do so. Equally important, we will discuss when you are justified to abstain from intervening a situation. Without question, the rules of engagement in this area can be confusing and extremely unclear. Our discussion should make the path more apparent.
