EPAC Webinar on April 28: “Towards a New Moral Economy: Ethics Essentials for Essential Workers during COVID”

When: Wednesday, April 28, 2021, from noon to 1:00 p.m. EDT
Cost: EPAC members attend our webinars free of charge. The usual price for non-members is $40 (students $15), but this time it’s ‘pay what you can’ after the webinar.

What challenges are workers – low-paid essential workers and others too – facing during COVID-19? What happens when there’s a difficult choice between health precautions, workplace needs, and the worker’s income? What do we mean when we speak of workers facing unprecedented moral distress and moral injury in the workplace? What can COVID teach us about fairness on the part of employers and organizations? Join David Nitkin, President of EthicScan and the first president of EPAC, in examining the seven clusters of issues he raises in this article: An Immoral Side Of COVID – COVID-19 Ethics Blog (ethicscan.ca). Please read it beforehand, and of course, come prepared to add your own challenges and solutions.

Mr. Nitkin’s presentation will address five topics:

  • Who are front line workers
  • What traditional and new challenges do they face during COVID
  • What for them is moral distress and injury
  • What ethical responsibility challenges and opportunities do employers and professional associations face
  • What are the consequences of inaction
