Find a moral problem in your place of employment. Tell me about it. What really bothers you and why? It need not be actually happening. The moral problem could be a potential problem, no matter how likely. Be creative. If you can’t think of a real problem you will likely face, make one up.
Tell me what your position on the problem is, and what the relevant utilitarian and deontological considerations are. Who is being, or will be, hurt? Who is being, or will be, benefited? Why, overall, do you think your position on the issue is for the greatest good over the long haul? Whose rights are involved? Who has special duties?
Here are some possible topics:
- Privacy in employment tests
- Privacy in genetic tests
- Privacy in e-mail—should your boss be allowed to read your e-mail?
- Safety issues
- Fair employment practices (e.g., pay, hiring/firing, benefits)
- Discrimination on any unfair basis
