ACM Ref: ComputingMilieux_THECOMPUTINGPROFESSION
Medicine and law no longer accurately represent a complete definition of professional status. Today the term has come to refer to a worker more than an autonomous, skilled individual providing services to clients. Ambiguities regarding what constitutes a profession have created an opening for other groups to claim this status. Using teachers as an example, this paper explores the contemporary profession. It is contended that maintaining the service user’s trust has become an integral part of professional status. There are expectations as to standards of service, especially where advice is given. And yet, employing the service user’s perspective also reveals limitations particularly how the law’s technical analysis of tort liability may dash these expectations. Profession may give rise to obligations in favour of employers of professionals but the term is not necessarily as effective when service-users seek to enforce expectations.
