Is it true that companies always strive to look at their interests primarily when it comes to devising policies, just to safeguard their interests? And incidentally the policies appear to be in favor of employees?
I think it might be true for all the other industries, however for software industry, when your main asset itself is the human skill, wouldn’t it become the company’s primary responsibility to protect that in the company’s best interest?
Here is an ethical question:
1. Company has a policy for providing claims for transport facilities for employees who work late for no extra pay.
2. In a particular day a company social event was organized after working hours, and the company refused to provide transport for some of the employees who required it (mostly female employees). Note: most of these employees regularly work late.
What do you think about the above scenario? Please share your thoughts.
