There are several theories regarding ethics in the workplace, which I have been taught in
the courses conducted by the University of California. In this course, I have learnt about
utilitarianism theory, deontology theory, ethics of care, divine or religion command theory,
virtue ethics and many others, which is applicable in my workplace (Daniel, 2015). I am working
in a law firm in California after pursuing my law graduation degree from the university, as
mentioned above. I am working in the litigation team, and we have a written policy regarding
several benefits, as well as rules and regulations, which the employees of this firm should obey.

they can able to take a leave in any day of every week regarding their personal requirements with
a prior discussion of team leader. The utilitarian theory has applied in this policy of ‘week off’.
This policy helps to provide an amount of happiness to the employees in my workplace as we
can take the leave in any day, and it will help us to do some work which is only conceivable in
weekdays. In my workplace, our employers have taken almost every decision on any matter,
such as case relating or client, which is not on the basis of individual desire or any strength
consequence, but also with a commitment that it is right to do. This policy of our employers is
satisfied with the deontology theory, which I have read in my graduation course. In our
employment policy, it has strictly written that there should not be any discrimination regarding
religion or gender during the course of employment. It can be mentioned to show the ethics of
non-discrimination on religion that there is a prayer hall in the boundary of our firm, which is
available for all. In my firm, the first aid medicines are always available for the employees for
any accidental incident. The female employees are able to avail their personal needs at any time
from our HRs and it helps in any emergency occurs at the office time. The employers have
fulfilled the ethics regarding the duty of care towards the employees and it also satisfies the other
