future for labour ethics. Dr. Lyse Langlois maintains that an enhanced
awareness of the process of ethical decision making in difficult
situations will lead to the establishment of practices that encourage
productive relationships between co-workers. Will the twenty-first
century be marked as an era leading to a healthier work environment?
