Interactions between managers, business owners, and employees create numerous opportunities for breaches of ethics. An ethical breach occurs when someone makes an unethical choice that sets a standard by which others can make a similar decision. The danger of ethical breaches is that they represent a fundamental change in the ethics of your organization.
Using the module readings, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, research reports on US-based organizations that have allegedly breached laws regarding ethical conduct in business with respect to labor or human resources. Limit your research to affirmative action and equal employment opportunity requirements.
Then, based on your research, respond to the following:
- Identify two examples of poor corporate labor relations policies related to affirmative action and equal employment opportunity requirements. Describe the breaches that have occurred due to these policies.
- Using these examples of business wrongdoing, discuss flaws in the US business or financial systems that allow companies to disregard ethics and values.
- Make recommendations for improving the situations in these examples. Offer several supportive arguments.
Write your initial response in 300–500 words. Your response should be thorough and address all components of the discussion question in detail, include citations of all sources, where needed, according to the APA Style, and demonstrate accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation
