This course introduces the application of business ethics and ethical standards in the workplace. Within recent years, the media has bombarded the public with stories of the degradation of many of the country's top businesses based solely on unethical conduct. As these cases bring to light, the actions of a few employees can drastically affect the entire company. Compliance with applicable laws and regulations is required by law. However, this course seeks to expand the definition of ethical conduct to include the everyday office behavior that defines an organization and its standards of business conduct. Every workplace must adhere to a strict Code of Conduct (COC), describing the acceptable practices, ethical standards, and responsibilities that must be met by both the company and each individual to achieve the highest level of behavior and standards throughout the entire employee population. Ethics in the workplace is the fundamental element of any basic Code of Conduct and provides all employees with an understanding of essential topics.
At the conclusion of this course you should be able to:
- Identify cases of unethical conduct that may transpire in the workplace
- Explain how one instance of unethical conduct can derail an entire company
- Define and describe at least three areas of professional conduct required within any company
- List the different elements commonly linked to fraudulent practices
- Name the personal characteristics protected by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
- Recognize the inherent risks of using company computer systems to transmit any personal, sensitive, or private matters.
