Ans. 1 Britney MacPherson as the manager of the Winnipeg location of Maple Leaf Shoes is handed over three cases regarding the problems that had occurred in the facility.
According to the case the problem that needs to be taken care of first is regarding Paul Bertuzzi warehouse supervisor at the Winnipeg facility. Paul on his training met two other supervisors of different locations who revealed to him a moneymaking scheme of selling the company’s latest shoe designs and production techniques to an overseas shoe manufacturer in return for part-ownership in the business. An auditor of the company discovered about scheme of two warehouse supervisors of other facilities and they were fired. Paul and an employee admitted to be aware of this scheme. This problem is very important to be solved as it is related to the company’s confidential information. The manager needs to look deeply into the problem to find out whether they actually had given any information or they just planned about this scheme. Because in case the information has been leaked the company may have to face disastrous problems as the overseas manufacturer may produce and sell the products at cheaper rates than their company, due to which they may have to plan some new ideas to solve the future problem
The Problem that needs the least attention is related to Max MacSweeney a sever year old accountant of the company who has a good repute in the business community.

... incident related to misuse of inventory to the manager. He can also be charged of planning to join the scheme later due to which he didn’t reported about the fraud.
Ans. 6 The Court can overrule the decision for terminating Paul as he was not involved in the scheme. Due to his honesty he even admitted to be aware of the scheme. Moreover, no fraud was found in his facility and he should be held responsible for the warehouse for which he is in charge. Furthermore, higher management should be held responsible for not keeping an eye on the activities of supervisors at different locations.
Ans. 7 From my point of view I would have reported the scheme to senior management. The scheme would have proved very harmful for the whole company and the harm of the company is bad for each and every employee of the company. Many people may have lost their jobs due to this scheme.

Lastly, by holding unlawful job negotiations with a Pentagon official, the Boeing former financial officer was seen to be breaching the utilitarianism principle. Moreover, concealing of the findings of the internal studies regarding gender’s pay further illustrates this ethical lapse in Boeing.
The Hollate Manufacturing case provided by Anti-Fraud Collaboration has well illustrated how several common issues in an organization contributed to the fraud’s occurrence. These issues can be categorized into two major groups: ethical culture (internal aspect) and internal control system (external aspect). By taking effective actions to enhance these two aspects, an organization can protect itself against the largest frauds, which result in financial and reputational damage.
When you see this beautiful, comfortable, high top black and white pair of sneakers, you see greatness. You can wear them with a suit, or play basketball games in them, or be like me, and just want them forever. The shoes are size 7, and they weigh no more than three ounces. The stitching is so perfectly straight and pearly that it resembles models’ teeth. The laces are jet black like the eyes of a demon. However, with just eyesight you can’t tell the wonderful details of this shoe. You have to put them on, and you have to run around in them. The soles are very thin yet so soft and squishy, as if you were walking on clouds. This shoe is the 9th edition of Michael Jordan’s signature shoe to come out in stores. Have you ever had many friends that were wealthier than you? Have you ever went to school and played in the same shoes with holes in them? Have you ever gone to school with the same shoes two years in a row? Exactly. I have, and it’s not a good feeling when being talked down to. Bullying got on my nerves, so I just got into fights. With everything bad was happening in my life from my mother going to jail, and me barely having clothes on my back, as crazy as it may seem, all I wanted was a pair of Jordan’s.
I believe that asset misappropriation by accounts payable fraud is occurring at Wayland Manufacturing Company due to a lack of proper internal controls. Making the company’s Chief Accountant responsible for additional day-to-day functions provides him with opportunity to commit by creating fictitious vendors with his information and then creating fictitious invoices. Newbaker can then conceal his fraud by approving the invoices for payment. Employees working at an organization for more than five years are more likely to commit fraud. Therefore, Newbaker’s six-year history with the company has made him trustworthy and very knowledgeable, which could indicate involvement in asset misappropriation. The high employee turnover could represent a past fraudster leaving before getting caught or employees refusing to continue with the asset misappropriation. In addition, the varying monthly accounts payable transactions ranging from the lowest being April 2014 and

According to the Deontology method ethical behavior can be measured to an absolute set of standards. So, according to deontology the answer is almost a simple “yes” or “no.” This method is guided by morals. Therefore, any illegal action would not be approved of. The Kantian method is based around the principle of “What if everyone acted in the same way?” If every executive showed compassion towards the lower level employees, the employees may have made it out of this situation unscathed. The Utilitarianism method is consequence oriented. It is based on “The greatest happiness for the greatest number.” Again, there were more employees than executives. Making a couple times the amount that employees make, the executives could have spared
With over 759 million registered domain names, the Internet has proved to be the definitive source of information (Hunter). Covering a full spectrum of subjects and services, it is an entity that we can not do without.

Tyco provides products and services across the world. The company is global and diversified providing a variety of products including electronics, healthcare, fire and security services and engineered products and services. While employing over 250,000 people worldwide they grossed approximately $40 billion in revenue in the year 2005. In 2002 Tyco was involved with the corporate scandal where the management mis-appropriated corporation funds. The previous CEO Dennis Kozlowski was convicted in 2005 on 22 counts of the 23 that he was charged with. This is an example of not only a legal issue of responsibility but also one of an ethical issue that the Tyco Corporation has had to face. In the face of the legal and ethical issues that this mishap had placed the corporation in, Tyco placed Ed Breen in as chairman and CEO. Mr. Breen joined the company in 2002 after the scandal and immediately began the rebuild of the company’s name. With the appointment of Ed Breen and his changing of the company’s ethical standards (to be discussed in the next portion of the paper) he promotes the legal responsibilities of not only the company’s employees but the responsibilities of the suppliers and buyers to report any wrong doing. This reporting also speaks to the ethics of the Tyco corporation employees as well as those of the companies th...
According to the scenario, Jacob and Krystal worked in an ad agency that started five years ago in Topeka, Kansas. The ad agency was barely making a profit and needed a large client, which led the agency to put in a bid for a city government contract. Due to Jacob’s son being sick, he was preoccupied with taking care of his son and left Krystal with most of the work. Krystal prepared the presentation and got with Jacob the day before the final meeting with the client. Krystal knew that Jacob has good speaking skills and they both decided that Jacob would do the presentation. Jacob’s presentation was a success and they successfully sealed the contract. The owners of the company were so impressed and gave Jacob a bonus check of $10,000. Jacob saw this opportunity where he could use the money for his son’s medical bills. However, he knew that Krystal did most of the work and deserved the bonus money. Jacob is disappointed and his situation has left him with a decision on what to do with the money. This case study will pinpoint Jacob’s ethical dilemma and what ethical action he should take. Also, the roles and responsibilities of an employee dealing with an ethical situation as well as the ways of an organization to maintain ethical practices in the workplace
Since the invention of the computer and the creation of the internet, technology has come a long way. Computers initially filled up entire rooms to now easily fitting in the palm of the next 10-year old kid, the internet id a platform that is beneficial for the distribution of content such as music and video. Companies across the globe took an early potential the internet had to make them money and push their company 's forward. The pornographic industry hasn 't let this new form of technology pass then by, that can clearly be seen in almost every form of media today with online pornography being one of its most explicit versions. For the past several years, a debate as to whether porn causes negative effects in the individual and social lives
Meantime, pornographic artifacts such as videos and pictures are ubiquitous; they can be found in the sex shop, at the newsstands or even at home through the internet. According to Manning (2005)’s study, he revealed that the global revenues generated from the general pornography was fifty-seven billion dollars in 2005, with 2.5 billion dollars revenue came from the internet sector. He further denoted that the pornography market is now generated far more revenues than other markets such as the basket franchise and professional football (Manning, 2005). A more recent data disclosed by Internet Pornography Statistics (2006) demonstrated an increasing trend of pornography consumption. The global revenue of pornography market was increased to ninety-seven billion dollars in 2006, and China with twenty-seven billion dollars was listed as the top in generating most of the pornography revenues (Internet Pornography Statistics, 2006). Under the facilitation of internet nowadays, it enables a vast range of pornographic products (e.g. images; videos) and offers anonymous access for people all over the world to consume
In recent years, pornography has established itself as perhaps the most controversial topic arising out of the use of the Internet. The easy availability of this type of sexually explicit material has caused a panic among government officials, family groups, religious groups and law enforcement bodies and this panic has been perpetuated in the media.
The Internet came with an abundant amount of benefits for our civilization as a whole. People became more connected and had the ability to access information they would have otherwise never seen. Yet, there is another side to this connectivity a much more malicious side: pornography. Pornography, typically abbreviated as porn, dominates the internet- as many as 12% of all websites are pornographic and the industry is worth nearly $97 billion . With regards to acceptance, some supported pornographic consumption while others rejected it due to religious or moral beliefs. Porn was considered as something that was not very dangerous. This has all changed, however, within the last decade as piles of research highlights the crude effects of pornography, not just on adults, but also adolescents. Porn harms adolescents through obscenity and early exposure to sexual images, this in turn promotes less progressive gender roles and sexual behavior .
