Imagining time. In my blog, I mention

Imagining a scenario where my supervisor reads my blog that I write in my free time. In my blog, I mention things that happen to me and my coworkers at the workplace but I didn’t mention the names of my coworkers or the employer. I began using the blog to communicate with co-workers to form a union that opposes poor working conditions.I would consider it a moderate invasion of my privacy. Labor laws protect employees and allow them to engage in an activity that results in mutual aid and protection. Employers can access a blog to determine if the content in the website could be offensive to potential clients for the company (McNelis, 2014).Utilitarianism is an ethical theory that would support the supervisor’s mindset. Utilitarianism holds that a given action must maximize pleasure while focusing on rules (Mosser, 2010). He would take this move to make a corrective action to promote the best interests of the company. The supervisor may have valued the image of a disciplined company more than the rights of individuals. The issue that led to the monitoring is the fear that I would reveal the company’s name. The employer was afraid that my conduct could harm the company’s reputation or products.An ethical theory that would support an employee’s viewpoint is ethical egoism. Ethical egoism asserts that all persons ought to act in a manner that serves their self-interest (Mosser, 2010). Following the respect of privacy, employees can do what please them during non-working hours. The constitution guarantees the right to exercise trade union membership. The respect for privacy also grants employees freedom to engage in trade union activities. It is in the interest of employees to ensure that people respect privacy rights and the constitution. ReferencesMcNelis, K. (2014).
