Ethics Policies According o Golja and Paulisic (2010) ethics is define as a system of moral principles, the rule of conduct recognized in respects to a particular class of human actions or a particular group, culture and the moral principles of an individual. Camps and Majocchi (2010) defines ethics as rules of conduct, in other words ethics is treating others as you would want to be treated. According to the authors, the best principle for implementing and supporting ethical behavior in an organization is to first champion leadership to support and enforce ethics policies. Once leadership support is ascertained then an assessment should be done to determine what ethical policies are needed to meet the needs of the organization. After receiving the results from the assessment, managers should solicit employees for input and to volunteer with writing and reviewing policies.
According to the New Oxford American Dictionary, ethics is defined as “moral principles that govern a person’s or group’s behavior.” Therefore, in an ideal world, ethics should play the ultimate role when making a decision. If ethics are the principles which guides one’s behavior then, ideally, all decisions should be made entirely based on ethics. Unfortunately, such is not always the case. A few problems arise when one tries to make an ethical decision, especially as a leader. First, ethics may mean different things to different people.
Ethics, by definition are the moral principles that govern a person’s behavior. Implementing ethics is essential in any given society.

Ethical standard are based on entirely Justifications for the law that serves as a tool of behavior change, or social engineering. When Laws are used to control behavior, it must have totem of ethical standard in which sanctions are provided morally. In addition, by teaching people what behaviors are acceptable and what ones are not ethical standard must be used. As Law becomes society value so does ethical standard because every person is a value to society, and society has a right to protect this value, and even against his or her will.

Additionally, the centre for ethical leadership quoted in Kondlo (2013), refers ethical leadership to “knowing your core values and having the courage to leave them in all parts of your life in the service of the common good” (p.121). Guy (1990), views ethical leadership as a process of inquiry concerning questions of right and wrong as well as a mode of conduct for setting an example to others about the rightness or wrongness of particular actions.

It is a quality system by which we judge human acts right or wrong, good or bad” (p.12). Ethics deals with the reasoning behind morals, or the underlying logic which leads to morality. Joseph Migga Kizza (2011) describes ethics as, “…a theoretical examination of morality or ‘theory of morals’” (p.18). Ethics, morality, and law are the typical foundation for the code of ethics or the code of conduct for an organization.

That is a hard question, and part of it is deciding whether or not behavior is ethical, and determining what is right or wrong.

Our way of life and conducting ourselves in front of society is the basic of ethics. Who makes and judges these principles and rules? We always seem concerned with who is watching who. Morality and ethics are said to be partners and accomplices in their meanings and purposes. They both share the study of values, and the system of general moral principles and the conception of morality, both of these terms are pretty words used for describing our personal beliefs and behaviors.
