EthicsGame Dilemmas Ginger Bailey ETH/316 July 23, 2012 Charles J. Fanning EthicsGame Dilemmas The EthicsGame Simulation provided two different scenarios in which the player was to decide how to deal with an ethical dilemma in the workplace. Each simulation had different ethical issues to deal with and provided assistance to the manager (player) on how to come to a resolution for the situation.

PHI 445 Week 1 Journal Entry Ethics are an organized analysis of values, relating to human conduct with respect to their rightness and wrongness (Introduction to Business Ethics, Ch. 1, P. 11).

The Ethical Dilemma of Outsourcing. This paper will examine the phenomena of outsourcing from an employee and corporate perspective in an attempt to gain insight into the pros and cons of the outsourcing issue. The researcher proposes that outsourcing is morally and ethically an objectionable practice; the results show little benefit to the company and much harm to the employees it effects. A formal review of the literature available with regards to outsourcing is analyzed, and the case against outsourcing is made. The researcher shows how outsourcing impacts workers in a negative manner, goes against the moral and ethical standards inherent in business and proves that outsourcing will ultimately result in dissatisfaction for corporations in the long term.

Business Ethics Individual Assignment Due date: Thursday, November 29, 2012 Submitted by: Dwight S. Williams Summary of “The parable of the sadhu” An analysis of the parable written by Bowen H. McCoy has many thought-provoking discourse and debates but I would like to highlight three main points. 1. A lesson in Corporate Ethics --- if the organization does not inculcate a value system then managers may not be supported when the organization is faced with simple or complex ethical issues despite the moral standards of individuals. Ultimate moral standards may be similar but implementation approaches may differ and so moral justification must be based on sources external to the conscience of individuals. However, such a value system must be cognizant of and be sensitive to the individual needs and manage them to the benefit of the organization.
A code of ethics supplied by a business is a specific kind of policy statement.

Violation of any organizations Code can cause legal accusations or dismissal from a job. The Ethical Standards of Human Service Professionals provides specific “rules” to follow that will protect the client’s welfare with respect and integrity.

The authors explore the ideas of collusion in the workplace and the controls put into place to avoid collusion. They analyze what could go wrong and the motivations and opportunities that are available to allow collusion to be executed in corporations. The author outlines the control efforts that are put into place as the redundant and compensating controls and notes there are more than just one preventative measures in place. By having more than one check point the controls have a system that not only prevents collusion but can also detect the presence of collusion. This source is relative to my paper discussing auditing collusion because it discusses collusion as a whole in a corporation.
Caldwell et al. (2006) noted that the duties of stewards were fraught with a complex set of ethical obligations. Many professional codes of ethics or rules are supposed to govern the ways and actions or conduct of laws given by the professionals within a professional business for you. Group of professionals generally sets these rules so that their professional peers see anyone who violations one of these rules of conducts are in violation of this rule as disapproval. The moral ethical standards of a society provide the basic guidelines for corporate ethical stewardship existence and allow us to resolve conflicts by social existence and allow us to resolve conflicts by appeal to shared principles of justification.
