Blue Mountain Company Vs David Tuff

492 words - 2 pages

From a completely ethical standpoint, especially an Utilitarian ethical standpoint, the actions of David Tuff could be considered for the betterment of the society on the whole and therefore correct. Tuff is an experienced military man and has performed law enforcement duties in that post. Recognition for his service and integrity are notable. His actions were brought about by what some might say as "unwarranted" changes in the rules of Tuff's employers.It is interesting to observe that the changes in the rules made by Blue Mountain Company were contradictory to the rules and regulations set by SSD, the security services division of Blue Mountain Company. In judging ...view middle of the document...

Tuff became angry when Blue Mountain Company management did not agree to modify the policy and instead directed him to report any such incidents to the supervisor in charge, who would then make a decision on any further action. After failing to make progress with Blue Mountain Company, Tuff pursued the following actions externally:* He contacted an anti-drunk driving volunteer organization to seek an interpretation of Blue Mountain Company's policy;* He later contacted the same organization to voice a specific complaint about Blue Mountain Company's policy;* He then contacted a local newspaper and television news station.Unfortunately, during this time, there were several drunk driving incidents on Blue Mountain Company managed property. Therefore the media attraction was negative and caused problems for Blue Mountain Company. The problem lies in the fact that the policies in question contradict and the idea of a security company's policies contradicting the law will never be a good image. The policy was wrong and therefore Tuff had every right to continue taking more drastic steps until he was finally heard.If Blue Mountain Company was right to fire Tuff, then they would be right to fire all who wrote and complied with the new policy towards drunk drivers because they also broke a previously written policy. Perhaps some leave without pay until the policy problems could be worked out would be a good idea. From a public relations perspective, it might actually be in the company's best interest to thank Tuff for bringing the problem to their attention.
