Overview

Comprehensive and thorough in scope, Ethics and the Conduct of Business, sixth edition, frames each issue and examines the arguments for each side with rigor and clarity. Numerous real-life examples and case studies increase understanding of issues and stimulate class discussion. The revised and updated sixth edition retains the familiar structure of previous editions. A chapter on employee rights has been expanded to include not only unjust dismissal but also expression and participation in the workplace and just compensation. The coverage of corporate social responsibility has been expanded, and new material on corporate accountability has been added. Of the forty-seven cases in the book, fourteen are new.
