From the Paper:

"Human resources management is an area of business administration that has been receiving increased scholarly and practical attention in recent years. The employees of a given organization have been increasingly recognized as having more personal rights over the past century, leading to changing assessments of what is ethically viable in matters of staffing, promotions, employee treatment, compensation, and a variety of other issues now dealt with in the field known as human resources management. The new ethicality of human resources management has also led to the development of new legal concerns and imperatives in the area, as society tries to ensure that its official institutions are keeping pace with the more individual and human aspects of day-to-day life. The interactions of these recognized human needs and rights and the legal measures that have been put into place to protect these rights and ensure that employers live up to their ethical duties can be quite complex.
"Complicating matters still further, though often in a very necessary way, are labor unions that provide for the collective bargaining and increased solidarity of the work force. These organizations work to ensure that employees receive the maximum benefits that are practical for the employing organization to provide, ensuring that the success of the organization leads to the success of the employees who helped make the organization successful in the first place. As simple as this sounds, however, the real practical implications are far more complex."
