This weeks case study will require some research on your part. Being a business professional requires that you have very good research skills. Here is an opportunity for you to practice and fine-tune those skills.
Locate an article that discusses unethical business conduct which has resulted in individuals being convicted, or at least tried for, this conduct. An example would be Enron or the issues with Martha Stewart.
Write a 1-2 page paper discussing the unethical conduct, and explain why the conduct was/is considered unethical. Also, include in your summary an explanation of the court processes, along with the penalties applied toward the business and/or any individual connected with the case.
Explain whether you agree with the outcome. Did you agree with the court process? Were the courts too hard or too lenient? Was there something that you see that could or should have been done differently? Does the action of the business match your ethical beliefs or go against what you feel would be socially acceptable?
