Based on THIS; What is the ethical solution?
- There has been much controversy over the recently passed Obamacare. Domino’s in particular is feeling the pressure from the health care plan. Domino pizza officials claim the chain is going to have trouble complying with a mandate requiring fast-food restaurants to post the calorie makeup of their menu items. Apparently there are 33 million ways to sell a Domino’s Pizza, so putting calories in a menu for 33 million varieties is understandably difficult. Domino’s CEO, J. Patrick Doyle works with federal regulators to best handle the unique challenges presented to his business.
- The issue here is that the new health care plan is directly causing this business to struggle with management decisions. Some think that such mandates are unreasonable to ask of companies such as Domino’s. CEO, J. Patrick Doyle is most likely tempted to cut corners on counting calories because of the time and moneyit will save. This of course would be unethical because every business is to abide by the mandate.
- I believe that Domino’s CEO is handling the situation in the most rational and ethical way possible. Obamacare presented a roadblock for the company and instead of complaining or trying to fight it, Mr. Doyle is working with regulators and trying to adapt to the new changes. I commend him for his actions. Most people would cringe at the amount of work there is to do, but he’s embracing it and moving forward. More businesses should do business like Domino’s.
