The Ethical Imperative: Myth or Reality? The Increasing Importance of Ethical Considerations in the Role of the Human Resources Manager in the 1980's

Journal of Business Ethics 3 (2):119 - 125 (1984)
As a result of recent legislative developments and greater ease of accessibility, the Human Resources Manager (HRM) faces the challenge of not only maintaining records but also that of protecting employees from misuse of personal information contained in their individual personnel files. The widespread use of computers for maintaining employee records has resulted in new ethical dimensions and/or challenges for the HRM. Serious questions regarding accessibility to and dissemination of such personal information now confront the HRM. Unless policies are developed by organizations for dealing with such questions, eventually government will mandate such policies in order to protect employee rights.
