Even though the legal and ethical environment of business is a hot topic, it is extremely important to understand the legal and ethical environment in order to be a good citizen. This doesn’t mean you have to be a career criminal, but it does mean you need to be aware of the legal and ethical environment that surrounds your specific business and your profession.
One of the biggest reasons for business owners to be well-informed is that there are people out there looking to exploit you for your own gain. This is something that can come across as exploitative because it happens so often and that makes it all the more suspicious.
Like all professions in a legal and ethical environment, the business owner must be aware of the laws that govern what their clients are allowed to do. This means that they must be informed of what the rules are because they could actually be breaking them. This is something that is easy to overlook if you can just take the time to read the fine print and understand everything and everyone involved.
The company that I work for has a very specific set of rules that they follow because their clients are employees. They want to protect everyone and they want to protect their clients from any potential legal problems. However, there are some issues with this approach. One, you need to be aware that a company is a business that is allowed to do things that are not allowed by law.
One of the things you will find in many legal contracts is that they can set forth the limits of what a certain business entity can do. Many lawyers and others that are involved in business are trained to interpret these limits in a certain way. Many of these interpretations are based on how you can “put up” your business, so to speak, on a level playing field. It is important that you know what your business can and cannot do, and what the limits of this are.
While it is true that a business can’t do anything unethical or illegal, it is important to think about the kind of business that you are trying to run and what it is that you are trying to do. One of the ways that we can get out of a bad situation is to get the word out that we are not who we claim to be. So let’s take a look at some of our favorite examples of business law violations.
The first business law violation is the obvious one, but it is a common one and one that is often overlooked when we are dealing with laws about the rights and wrongs of business.
It is easy to forget that the laws we live by in America are the laws of the federal government. The federal government is the only body that has power over our rights and wrongs. When we get into a legal situation with the federal government, we are generally expected to comply with the rules. But the rules are not always the same. For example, federal law requires employees to get a yearly physical. But the rules do not necessarily apply to your home and your business.
The American Civil Liberties Union has recently called the American corporate system “the most broken system of legal systems in the world.” So with that in mind, I’m going to ask you to go to www.shareyourstory.com and click on the “Legal and Ethical Environment of Business” link on the left side of the page. There you will find a list of the federal laws that govern the legal and ethical environment of business.
Just as it says on the right hand side, these laws are made in the U.S. and apply to all businesses or organizations. The laws also define what the company or organization will need to do to be recognized and therefore allowed to operate in the U.S. These laws are made by the U.S. Congress and apply to all legal and ethical issues that relate to the U.S. government.
