Weyco® Incorporated Fires Employees Who Smoke
•The e-Activity presents two contrasting points of view. The employees who have been laid off and Weyco® Incorporated have different interests and desires, and the decision made by Weyco to provide employees who smoke with an ultimatum-quit smoking or leave-impacts these two parties very differently. Determine whether any personal rights are in dispute between these two parties. Compare and contrast the ways in which act utilitarians and rule utilitarians might respond to Weyco® Incorporated's decisions differently.
•Based on the e-Activity, compare and contrast the different ways in which utilitarians, libertarians, and Rawlsian egalitarians would evaluate Weyco® Incorporated's decision to lay off employees who smoke. Defend the position you find most compelling with good moral reasoning.
