Application Scenarios: What would you do? 1

What are the ethical concerns?

the BCBA is responsible for his behavior.

  • Treating others with respect (Core Principles)
  • Conduct self in professional manner (1.02)
  • Do not harass others (incl. coworkers; 1.08)
  • Following supervisor’s directions (2.02)
  • Improve own performance (2.03)
How might you approach this situation if you were the supervisor?

Give specific examples, and ask how he could change it, if he can’t and has gotten the education/feedback needed. If not, there needs to be a plan of action.

The RBT is creating a hostile work environment and his behavior cannot continue. The supervisor could create a final remediation plan where the evaluation instrument, performance expectation, and criteria for continued supervision need to be met for supervision to continue (while the supervisor may not be able to terminate the employee, refusing to supervise will not allow the RBT to continue to work).
