Ethics of Working from Home: Managing Expectations

Many people in the United States are now working from home in an effort to slow the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. This brings up all sorts of ethical dilemmas, including the one we’re discussing on this week’s show: How do expectations change with such a massive societal shift? Getting Ethics to Work’s resident ethicist Andy Cullison and producer Kate Berry mull over the reasons expectations might have to shift with new circumstances.
