Summary/Abstract: This paper aims to summarize the main aspects of ethical issues in human resource management. The noteworthy topics are: how people perceive fairness in organizations and which are those moral rights and obligations of employees which, although not stipulated in the work contract, have a great impact on ensuring an ethical management of human resources? We will refer to discrimination in the workplace, moral and sexual harassment and the legal framework governing equal treatment in labor relations. The paper ends with the proposal of an ethical model of human resources management which is inspired by the spirituality of an ancient religion, Zoroastrianism.
