However, the requirement of enrichment could be argued as well if enrichment came from knowledge and not profit. Lindquist certainly did have a reasonable expectation of being paid for these services and they were not doing this as any charitable act. Obviously Lindquist perceived the services that they were providing as a benefit to Middleton and Middleton assumed they would benefit. Craig Miller was a general manager of the successful organization, Lindquist Ford. So, it would lead you to believe that his presence at Middleton would be a benefit to that organization.
He did not encourage the violation of established rules and regulation. That is why he told the people that the payment of taxes to the government was the duty of the subject. His aim of his agitation was not the creation of an earthly kingdom but, the purification of the way of life of the individual to win the happiness found
The employer cannot disclaim liability simply by showing that the employee had been directed not to do what he did. The employee viewed the stealing of the shipment necessary in order to impress the employer, and assumed that he would be commended for what he did even though it more than likely would have been forbidden by his employer. Therefore, this act that the employee did was infact within the scope of employment for purposes of respondeat superior since the employee was acting on the task, and that the assumption that the employee would perform such
What evidence suggests that Cash Connection’s strategy and business model are ethical and beneficial to customers and to society at large? What evidence suggests the company’s strategy and business model are neither ethical nor beneficial to customers and that the entire payday lending industry has few if any redeeming qualities? * There are many evidences suggest that Cash Connection’s strategy and business model are ethical and beneficial to customers and to society at large. Cash Connections is not breaking any legal laws which may lend people to think they are ethical, but does Cash Connection pass the moral test is the question.

If no proof is provided, under the minority view of The Specific Intent Test, it could be concluded that the company did not want the employee or any other employee to quit, but to abide by the new policy in order to keep up with the demand of the company’s growth. If the company’s working conditions are found by the court to be reasonable, the claim will fall short under both tests. With regards to the current claim against the company, the change in the work schedule policy affects all production employees. It was not the intent of the company to make the change to cause working conditions to be so unbearable that an employee would quit, therefore it is not constructive discharge. For the protected class of Religion, Title VII states that covered employers shall not treat employees differently based on religion, harass employees based on religion, deny reasonable accommodation requests, or retaliate against employees (EEOC, 2012).
And here again, we see that if people listen to their conscience, and not to what society want them to believe is good, there will be some beneficial changes. In Civil disobedience, the author proved again that morality, as well as conscience plays an important role. Thoreau argued “It has been truly said, that a corporation has no conscience; but a corporation of conscientious men is a corporation with a conscience." By this, he too wanted to show that individual can take actions at any time without been influenced because of their own conscience of what is good or bad. By voicing out his conscience, individual will proved his uniqueness.
He decided that not taking any action is the best action. While source one and source two feel like they have a collective responsibility to the world, source two believes that if he does nothing to harm the world he does not need to do anything to help make it better. Source two also leads on source three’s statement that cannot find the correct explanation and theory as to why the world is the way it is. Source two believes the world is a mess because of what people DO to it and does not think that maybe it is a mess because of the people that DON’T do anything. Therefor he is only just acting on his theory and doing nothing, whilst source three would argue that maybe he should go back a look at the situation again and look for a different theory as to why the world is the way it is and act on the new theory.
Virtue ethics, unlike utilitarianism and deontology does not take into consideration a person’s change in moral character. For example, a person who may have committed fraudulent crimes in the past may have the same excuse for writing a bad check as well budgeted person who accidentally wrote the check off the wrong account. Neither meant to intentionally overdraw their account, but the unethical act was still committed. Utilitarianism, individuals are indebted to constantly behave so that most people benefit regardless of the act. The act can be fulfilling an obligation rather than performing a selfless act.
If his rational self-interest is to gain wealth, then he deserves that wealth. People are not supposed to care about the needs of others. Self-sacrifice is evil. Every man is entitled to his own happiness. He cannot demand that others sacrifice their happiness to make him happy, nor the
HUM 200 Paper #4 Sung Ho Ma A20346080 In the Martial’s ‘Epigram 10.47,’ we can see how Martial thought about how to lead a good life. For martial good life is made up of ‘No Law,’ ‘Light Business,’ ‘Quiet Mind,’ and ‘left wealth.’ The meaning of ‘no law’ is that Martial does not want to be involved in legal disputes. That is to say, Martial does not want to neither sue someone nor be sued by someone. When it comes to ‘light business,’ Martial does not want to be involved in complicated business. Even if he acquires high job position with high authority and wage, he hates having those job because the works are complicated, increased (workload), and require tough decision.
