Ethics have been a major concern for the human race for a long time. Whenever a group of people comes together to work ethical issues are experienced. There are many types of ethical issues that are present due to some reason or another. At the start of the industrial revolution the owners of the industries treated the workers more or less like animals. This resulted in a reaction, which resulted in the formulation of groups and parties that worked for the human rights, human rights is a part of ethics, in fact ethics cover a very large field. Ethics are a part of business from a long time. One of the major problem or ethical issue as we can call it is the gender discrimination in a work force. Discrimination that is against ethics can be divided into two types namely direct or slightly less direct. Direct discrimination means behaving with some one in an abnormal way or saying things about that person that degrade him or her, on the basis of his sex, race, religion, family status, nation, culture, age or some disability. A simple example of direct discrimination is not to give a woman a position or job in the office because she might in the future take a maternity leave. When small groups of people are required to comply with a condition due to their unique attribute from the others without proper justification a situation arises that is called indirect discrimination. The unethical behavior experienced in a workforce that I would discuss is treating black people unequally in a workforce.
