Write an 8 page paper in APA format (not including the cover page and reference page). There are several tools to aid you in the Student Resources. Please access the Essay Outline and the APA template for you to use for your assignments. There is another document titled: “Analysis, or Synthesis, or Critical Evaluation Course Workbook.” You will not need to turn that document in but it will help you in completing your weekly assignments as well as the Final Research Paper. Note that you need to conduct additional research to complete this assignment.
As the Director of HR, it has come to your attention that some of the supervisors are using social media websites to screen potential applicants. This person knows of at least one applicant that was not approved because of what was on social media. Considering that many people are living their lives on social media, who wouldn’t look to see what a person had on their social media sites. The organization does not have any written policy dealing with this but you worry it may break federal discrimination laws or worse create a negative image if this got out. Using three ethical principles as well as legal rules and regulations for hiring, discuss the implications of these supervisors’ actions. Can they do this? Why wouldn’t it be a good practice to do? What are your recommendations as to how this practice could be used in an ethical and legal manner? What are your recommendations for dealing with these managers?
This analysis should be prepared as a Microsoft™ Word document, 8 pages in length. The document should be prepared consistent with the APA writing style (6th edition) and reflect higher level cognitive processing (analysis, synthesis and or evaluation).

Limit the search dates to articles after 2012 and preface your search parameters with “health care” before you put your weekly subjects in the search line. Check the boxes for peer reviewed articles and full text.)
