I think that open and honest dialogue will help uphold an ethical work place. This means that people in leadership positions have to be role models that lead by example in regards to the standards they expect others to live by. I also believe that it needs to be clear what the company expects from its employees.

Business Ethics Part A Ethics are necessary to the internal and external output of a business. The managers at MKD have a responsibility to exercise ethical behavior towards their employees such as providing a code of conduct for employees to reference and abide by. A code of conduct is a set of guidelines for managers and employees to follow to make ethical decisions and maintain an ethical workplace.

In contrast to Larmer, DeGeorge states that there should be a certain rule of thumb before any workers go in public to disclose information about the safety of a product. I would analyze the Larmer’s instance as a positive attitude of employee towards his employer. Even though the act of disclosing information about the unethical issues sounds disloyal, it can be of significantly important in turning the table of wrongdoing to withdrawl of those practices. However, it is morally wrong to accuse somebody without enough evidences,which DeGeorge defines as a rule of thumb. As he states, “ if the harm that will be done by the product to the public is serious and considerable; if employees make their concerns known to their superiors; and if getting no safisfaction from their immediate superiors, they exhaust the channels available within the corporation, including going to the board of directors.
