About this book


This book explores the role of HRD professionals in making ethical and legal decisions in the workplace. While previous books have described the need for ethics in HRD, this book presents ethical and legal frameworks for effective implementation in the workplace. The ethical standards of an organization provide a key insight into its values, and this book shows the relationship between those values and HRD practices, such as hiring, training, and promotion. Exploring such topics as protected classes, employee rights, and employee privacy, this book will inform HRD scholars and practitioners on enhancing ethical and legal decision making in the workplace.
