LEG 500 Law, Ethics and Corporate Governance Week 9 Discussion 1
WEEK 9 DISCUSSION TOPIC: Workplace
Brad is an air traffic controller who has had significant problems with high blood pressure. He has changed his diet and takes medication, but the problem persists. His doctor has recommended that he find other employment because his job is causing his high blood pressure, and continuing to work at the job could lead to a massive heart attack. Brad has no training for any other job. Based on this scenario, determine what Brad’s options are to receive compensation for his health issues. Next, debate whether you believe that Brad qualifies for worker’s compensation due to his health issues, and analyze the key legal and ethical issues faced by Brad’s employer throughout this process.
