Selected Case

  • Topic: Responsibility
  • Region: Global

A manager finds out that a new member of his team has a mental disability: she cannot function well under tight deadlines. HR knew of the disability, but did not inform the manager. Should HR disclose critical performance-related background information when it relates to a disability? How should one manage teams in which some members have disabilities that affect others?

Pedagogical Objectives:
Illustrate ethical challenges that arise in the modern workplace, notably those related to mental disabilities.
