1 The Ethical Swordsman - Dave Duncan
Auteur : Dave Duncan
Genre : Épopée
Dave Duncan fans: once more into the fray!

Niall's father taught him about honour, about the value of a man keeping his word. And this is a tenet by which Niall has lived his life, even while training to be a Blade.

Now, however, King Ambrose is dead, and his daughter, Malinda, wears the Chivian Crown, and even as Niall is made Prime of the Blades, he's been put under dire oath to the Queen, made a spy, and about to face a challenge to everything he had been taught about honour and the privilege of being a Queen's Blade.

In this the last of the King's Blades series, Dave Duncan takes his readers on a high adventure and what will be remembered as a deeply satisfying conclusion.

Emphasis is placed on the importance of stressing business ethics in society, and on effective methods of teaching the concepts to students so that they will carry a strong ethical sense into the business world.

10 The Ethical Sellout - Lily Zheng & Inge Hansen
Auteur : Lily Zheng & Inge Hansen
Genre : Développement personnel
In the age of purity politics and public shaming, people are fearful of betraying their values and selling out. Authors Lily Zheng and Inge Hansen make the bold claim that everyone sells out—and that the challenge lies in doing it ethically.

“Selling out” isn't an action that many think of in neutral terms. It brings to mind the politician who concedes to lobbyists and corporations, the musician that signs a major record deal, or even the once radical activist-turned-celebrity. It's no wonder why many feel defensive when accused of selling out. But in a world where compromise is an essential aspect of life, we all sell out in one way or another.

Drawing from their own stories and from a diversity of people who recount their own struggles with dilemmas around selling out, Lily Zheng and Inge Hansen confront two provocative questions: What compels so many of u

12 The Ethical Meat Handbook, Revised and Updated 2nd Edition - Meredith Leigh
Auteur : Meredith Leigh
Genre : Ingrédients particuliers
A delicious alternative to the status quo when it comes to how we farm, cook, and eat

Nutrition, environmental impact, ethics, sustainability – it seems like there's no end to the food factors we must consider. At the center of the dietary storm is animal-based agriculture. Was your beef factory farmed or pasture-raised? Did your chicken free range, or was it raised in a battery cage? Have you, in short, met your meat?

Most efforts to unravel the complexities of the production and consumption of animals tend to pit meat eaters and vegetarians against each other.

In this 2nd edition of The Ethical Meat Handbook , Meredith Leigh argues that by assuming responsibility for the food on our fork and the route by which it gets there, animals can be an optimal source of food, fiber, and environmental management. This new edition covers: <

13 Ethical and Scientific Issues in Studying the Safety of Approved Drugs - Committee on Ethical and Scientific Issues in Studying the Safety of Approved Drugs & Institute of Medicine
Auteur : Committee on Ethical and Scientific Issues in Studying the Safety of Approved Drugs & Institute of Medicine
Genre : Médecine
An estimated 48 percent of the population takes at least one prescription drug in a given month. Drugs provide great benefits to society by saving or improving lives. Many drugs are also associated with side effects or adverse events, some serious and some discovered only after the drug is on the market. The discovery of new adverse events in the postmarketing setting is part of the normal natural history of approved drugs, and timely identification and warning about drug risks are central to the mission of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Not all risks associated with a drug are known at the time of approval, because safety data are collected from studies that involve a relatively small number of human subjects during a relatively short period. Written in response to a request by the FDA, Ethical and Scientific Issues in Studying the Safety of Approved Drugs discusses ethi

Auteur : Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal

ABSTRACT Technological advancements in the global business environment and consolidation of corporations lead many people to believe that the coverage of ethics in universities is best achieved by having a diverse classroom, including a variety of nationalities and cultures. This paper attempted to analyze ethical perspectives of American and Jordanian students. Results indicated that students, in both countries, seemed to lack understanding of the relationship between ethics and professional responsibility. The results showed that cultural factors affected students' perception of the relationship between ethics and professional responsibility. For example, Jordanian students were more likely than American students to risk their jobs because of social responsibility. The results showed a gender difference in the perception of ethics and professional responsibility. Females were more like

ABSTRACT The Enron and MicroStratagies debacles are among the latest in a string of headlines focusing on accounting firms and individual CPAs who have "crossed the line" by engaging in unethical, or at least what is widely perceived as highly questionable and ill-advised conduct. This study presents the perceptions of accounting practitioners regarding the extent of ethical misconduct in accounting as well as the pervasiveness of selected acts of questionable behavior. Respondents have also been surveyed regarding the likelihood of serious sanctions being imposed for selected types of misconduct as well as their direct personal experience with ethical issues. (Data for this study was gathered prior to the disclosure of the events surrounding Enron.)

In spring 2010 this was a question that was of significant interest to many in Omaha, Nebraska. The city, in an effort to cut expenses, unilaterally changed the retirement health insurance benefits for its retirees and employees. What happens in Omaha may impact other parts of the country, as many cities are looking to reduce expenditures in these difficult economic times.

Genre : Droit
INTRODUCTION Complying with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) continues to be a challenge for employers. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2008, the U.S. Depart of Labor's Wage and Hour Division (WHD) recouped back wages totaling $185,287,827 for 228,645 workers. While this amount is down from the $220,613,703 recouped in FY 2007, it still represents a 40 percent increase over the FY 2001 amount. Since FY 2001, WHD has recouped more than $1.4 billion in back wages for over two million workers (DOL News Release, 2009). Back wages associated with overtime violations accounted for 88 percent of all FLSA back wages collected and 93 percent of all workers due FLSA back wages (DOL Results Page, 2009). The amount of back wages recouped and the number of employees receiving those wages have increased dramatically since 2001 (See Table 1).

19 Out with the Old; The Termination of the Mixed Motive Case Under the ADEA. - Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Auteur : Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Genre : Droit
INTRODUCTION The labor force within the United States has been experiencing a trend whereby the average age is drastically increasing. As it currently stands, over 48% of the U.S. workforce is comprised of employees that are at least 40 years of age (The Aging Workforce, 2008). This number is expected to increase to 51% within the next few years (The Aging Workforce, 2008). While an experienced employee brings a wealth of knowledge and valuable experience, there is often a positive correlation with higher wages. Though many businesses capitalize upon the seasoned employee's experience, others find the higher costs overly inhibitive on already financially stressed corporations struggling to meet investor demands. In order to increase net income, a business can either increase revenue and/or decrease costs. As a result, employers, in an effort to minimize costs, have an incentive to reorga

They discuss technical aspects of tax evasion and the primary and secondary effects that tax evasion has on an economy. In many cases there is also a discussion about how to prevent or minimize tax evasion. Very few articles discuss ethical aspects of tax evasion. Thus, there is a need for further research, which the present study is intended to partially address.

ABSTRACT The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOA) is a law that will affect the lives of top level company officers along with finance and accounting professionals. Top level officers are responsible for the veracity of financial reporting under the SOA. Finance and accounting professionals have traditionally been the corporation's experts regarding financial and operational controls. However, in today's world, information technology (IT) professionals play a key role in designing and maintaining the systems that enforce those controls. This paper examines the challenges that IT professionals will face as they find themselves face-to-face with the provisions of the SOA, a law that could put executives in jail and cause middle managers to lose their jobs.

23 The Georgia Economic Loss Rule. - Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Auteur : Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Genre : Droit
ABSTRACT The Georgia Economic Loss Rule is a common law rule that inhibits claimants from seeking tort damages for losses in disputes about the functionality of products that are traditionally remedied in contract actions. The rule arises out of a desire by the courts to maintain separation between damages for breach of contract and the more expansive damages recoverable in tort. The rule provides that absent injury to person or property, other than to a malfunctioning product itself, where the loss is a pecuniary one like loss of the value or use of the product itself or the cost of repairing it, the claimant may not sue the provider for negligence. Application of the rule limits the claimant to remedies for breach of contract or warranty. The rationale is that where only the defective product is damaged due to an inherent defect an action for recompense seeks merely the benefit of t

ABSTRACT In 2002 the federal government altered the landscape of the accounting profession by creating, for the first time, a federal regulatory agency for this profession: the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB). Congress responded to the massive corporate failures of Enron, Tyco and others by enacting the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOA), to improve corporate governance and the reliability of financial information. Sarbanes-Oxley created the PCAOB to oversee the work of public accountants, the creators of corporate financial information.

ABSTRACT President Bush signed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOA) into law on July 30, 2002. At that time he said that it brought about "the most far-reaching reforms of American business practices since the time of Franklin Delano Roosevelt". The SOA was passed in response to corporate scandals involving Enron, WorldCom and others. It was intended to restore public confidence in our capital markets. Much of the SOA is directed at corporate and securities industry behavior. But the SOA also raises the regulatory bar far higher for the accounting profession, especially for accounts who audit public companies. The SOA created a new regulatory agency to oversee accountants' work: the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB). The SOA also imposed high ethical standards, including prohibiting conflicts of interest and even potential conflicts of interest. Civil and criminal penalties for v

In May of 2008, Jesse appeared on a Cincinnati television station to tell her story and, as she said, "... make sure no one else will have to go through this again." Two months later, Jesse hanged herself. Her parents have since brought a lawsuit blaming the Montgomery Police Department for failing to press charges against the defendants for "disseminating and pandering pornographic matter." The lawsuit also blames Sycamore High School for knowing about the situation but not stopping "... the hazing, bullying, taunting and harassment" of their daughter.

INTRODUCTION AND LITERATURE REVIEW Of recent interest is the highly debated situation of American Insurance Group (AIG) and the $165 million in executive bonuses, mostly paid to London traders who created the massive losses that resulted in government bailout money of $170 billion given to AIG. Were the AIG bonuses "legal"? In reality the bonuses were only one tenth of one percent of the total bailout amount. Additionally, AIG claimed they were contractually obligated to pay the bonuses. A government mistake was that there was no consideration of the possibility of bonus payouts in the structuring of the bailout terms by Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner. Therefore, the AIG bonuses were contractual and legal. However, the question arises as to how ethical the bonuses were, and should there be some obligation on the part of the recipients to repay the money (Reed, 2009)?

Auteur : Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal

ABSTRACT Virtual Corporations (VC's) are temporary flexible networks, dependent on mutual trust, and linked by information technology for the purpose of exploiting fast changing market opportunities. However, the very characteristics which make them so effective at exploiting fast-changing opportunities can create legal difficulties relative to the creation of a legal entity whose rights and duties can be established in a court of law. Specifically, it seems likely that such entities may increasingly be created via "virtual documents" using information technology in addition to, or instead of, conventional paper documents. This may bring into question the validity of the instrument which created the entity and therefore the legal existence of the entity itself. In addition, the creation of an entity via information technology can lead to jurisdictional disputes if problems arise. This

The analysis of the legal and regulatory framework specifically dealt with the extent to which the legal and regulatory environment meets international best practices and standards of business conduct and the extent to which self-regulatory mechanisms and voluntary codes/guidelines established by enterprises and trade/business associations are accommodated under the framework. Key findings include weaknesses of the business registration regime, which continues to keep a lot of informal businesses out of formal registration. Further, the legal and regulatory regime for the registration and governance of businesses has failed to catch up with international best practices. In view of the inadequate framework for governance of businesses under the C

INTRODUCTION The legal environment is a complicated and expensive component that all business should closely monitor, as changes can change the competitive landscape. In order to sustain a competitive advantage, employers must stay abreast of the numerous changes within the law that has the potential to affect their business. The need to monitor changes within the law is heightened when the business hires employees, as employment law issues have become the most litigated facet of law for small business owners. While the employee at-will doctrine still governs most employees, courts and legislatures have carved out numerous exceptions in order to afford additional safeguards to employees that they otherwise would not enjoy (Galberry, 2000). One of the more publicized examples involves employees seeking protections bestowed upon them through their employee handbook (Galberry, 2000). Cou

In a passionate dissent, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor stated that "[a]ny property may now be taken for the benefit of another private party." Given that perceptions can be formed with virtually no information, limited information, or misinformation, and given the public's outcry over the Kelo decision, a close examination of what the case actually said might be in order. Is the alarming reaction to Kelo well-placed indignation or unwarranted hysteria?

INTRODUCTION Business decision makers in the United States (U.S.) over time have learned that the changing of the guard in the Executive and Legislative branches of the Federal Government can lead to pronounced changes in a number of policy areas. With respect to U.S. Labor Policy, and specifically the enforcement focus of the U.S. Department of Labor, the changes in policy often create apprehension for business decision makers with respect to their internal compliance efforts and possible increases in their exposure to litigation. With the election of President Obama and an initial "super majority" for Democrats in both houses of Congress, employers subject to laws and regulations administered by the United States Department of Labor (DOL) should be preparing for a number of changes.

ABSTRACT Computers and the Internet have become a pervasive element in modern life. This technology is also used by those who engage in crime and other misconduct. Effective investigation of these offenses requires evidence derived from computers, telecommunications and the Internet. The need for digital evidence has led to a new area of criminal investigation: Computer Forensics. Forensic investigators identify, extract, preserve and document computer and other digital evidence. This new field is less than fifteen years old, and is rapidly evolving. Education in this field has focused largely on its technical aspects. However, there are significant legal issues and ethical problems that investigators must deal with. Failure to follow proper legal procedure will result in evidence being ruled inadmissible in court. As a result, a guilty criminal might go free. Failure to behave in an eth

Xenotransplantation involves the transplantation of cells, tissues, and whole organs from one species to another. Interest in animal-to-human xenotransplants has been spurred by the continuing shortage of donated human organs and by advances in knowledge concerning the biology of organ and tissue rejection. The scientific advances and promise, however, raise complex questions that must be addressed.
This book considers the scientific and medical feasibility of xenotransplantation and explores the ethical and public policy issues surrounding the possibility of renewed clinical trials. The volume focuses on the science base of xenotransplantation, public health risks of infectious disease transmission, and ethical and public policy issues, including the views of patients and their families.

INTRODUCTION The Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) provides for the enforceability of a written arbitration provision in any maritime transaction or contract involving interstate commerce, and declares that such agreements "shall be valid, irrevocable, and enforceable, save upon such grounds as exist at law or in equity for the revocation of any contract" (9 U.S.C. [section] 2, 2007). Supreme Court precedent sanctions arbitration as a dispute resolution mechanism, as well (Carrington, 2002). Commercial business, consumer, and employment disputes are arbitrated by organizations such as the National Arbitration Forum (NAF) and the American Arbitration Association (AAA).

INTRODUCTION In May of 2007 in response to a perceived "potential for greater discrimination against working parents and others with caregiving responsibilities", the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued new enforcement guidance addressing Unlawful Disparate Treatment of Workers with Caregiving Responsibilities (EEOC-A, 2007). On April 22, 2009, the EEOC issued additional guidance to employers offering "proactive measures that go beyond federal non-discrimination requirements" designed to reduce employers' exposure to litigation for "violations against caregivers, and to remove barriers to equal employment opportunity" (EEOC B, 2009).

"The courtship and engagement periods are usually happy times for a couple as they build a relationship and look toward marriage. However, happiness may fade, circumstances may change, the relationship may end, and the planned engagement may be canceled, repudiated, or frustrated, with no marriage occurring between the parties. When such a situation arises, one party to the courtship or engagement may seek to recover gifts of money or property previously given to the other party, requiring a legal determination of the parties' respective rights in the money or property." 1 ABSTRACT

41 Federal Express Drivers: Employees Or Independent Contractors? - Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Auteur : Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Genre : Droit
ABSTRACT Federal Express Ground has created a business model that has made it highly competitive in the package delivery industry; FedEx hires its drivers as independent contractors. This business model is not unique. In many industries workers are customarily hired as independent contractors to avoid the liability and expense associated with an employer/employee relationship. While potentially profitable, this business model also exposes the hiring party to lawsuits by workers claiming that they are employees rather than independent contractors. Currently Federal Express Ground is facing a wave of such lawsuits. This paper considers the employment status of FedEx drivers by examining the tests used to classify workers as either employees or independent contractors and by comparing FedEx drivers to drivers in the courier service industry who have been found to be employees rather than co

42 You Belong to Me: Employer Attempts to Keep Employees from Quitting to Work for Competitors Via Non-Compete Agreements in Employment Contracts. - Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Auteur : Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Genre : Droit
ABSTRACT At one point in time, employees remained with one employer for most of their careers. Today, employees are more mobile and are likely to have several employers over the course of their careers. Because of this increased mobility, employers are concerned that former employees will use the knowledge and skills they learned while in the employer's service to compete with their former employer. Thus, employers are faced with the dilemma of how to protect themselves from the competition of former employees. In order to protect their interests, employers often include a covenant not to compete, also referred to as a noncompete clause, in their employment contracts. It is the authors' contention that noncompete agreements are anticompetitive and contrary to the free enterprise system. Because some state courts are hostile to noncompete agreements, some companies have found more effecti

Auteur : Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Genre : Droit
ABSTRACT Employee allegations of sexual harassment by supervisors and co-workers continue to be a complex human resource management problem for employers. While recent Supreme Court decisions in Burlington Industries, Inc. v. Ellerth and Faragher v. City of Boca Raton provided employers with guidance in dealing with harassment in the workplace, allegations of harassment involving customers, clients, vendors, and suppliers is emerging as an area of liability that many employers may have overlooked and continue to struggle with. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission regulations have long held that employers may also be responsible for the acts of nonemployees with respect to sexual harassment of employees in the workplace, and in recent years more U.S. courts have relied on these regulations in recognizing the existence of a cause of action for harassment by third parties.

Auteur : Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Genre : Droit
INTRODUCTION Business schools have been trying for decades to educate ethical managers. The results of their efforts, however, often fall short of their hopes. MBA students, despite their exposure to business ethics during graduate school, are still often perceived as unethical win-at any-cost corporate climbers. Critics of MBA programs argue that not only do most business schools neglect ethics in their curriculum, but they actually encourage a focus on short-term profits and the compulsion of graduates to go to any lengths to increase shareholder profits (Alsop, 2006; Giacalone and Thompson, 2006). In the post-Enron world, hiring businesses are questioning the values of these graduates, and recognize that their focus on profit above all else can lead to serious damage to corporate reputations (Roy and Roy, 2004). Critics contend that business schools can and must do more in bringing

Auteur : Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Genre : Droit
INTRODUCTION It is a popular belief in today's America that there are equal opportunities for educational attainment. It is, at the very least, assumed that the fundamental structure of our public education system provides a level playing field for all children, regardless of gender, race, or religion. However, beginning in the 1950s, racial segregation of metropolitan areas became more common as increasing numbers of white families began moving from inner-city urban areas to suburban areas. For white families, the decision to relocate has been based on a combination of push and pull factors. The pull factors include the attractiveness and amenities of the suburbs (less congestion, more green space, etc..) and perception of higher quality schools. The push factors include inner-city crime, racism and declining property values.

46 Property Law, Personhood and Ethics: Stem Cell Research & Its Impact on Property Law. - Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Auteur : Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Genre : Droit
ABSTRACT Developments in biotechnology raise a myriad of issues relating to intellectual property law and ethics. Intellectual property law and specifically patent law, has been forced to create guidelines for patenting living matter. Patent law permits patent-holders to obtain a limited-time monopoly for patents of novel, useful, non-obvious processes and devices. Matter found in nature cannot be patented. However, processes to discover stem cells and transgenic animals have been approved by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. This paper explores the definition of legal definitions of property and intellectual property and the legal basis for patentability of stem cells. It points out some inconsistencies in the laws relating to property as contrasted to the laws of "personhood" and explores ethical issues. It ends with several suggestions to use the information to stimulate critical

INTRODUCTION Former Supreme Court Justice, Lewis Powell described the federal judiciary and the United States Supreme Court as perhaps "the most important instrument for social, economic, and political change" (Lazarus, 2008). The Constitutional origin of the Court is in Article III, [section]1, of the U.S. Constitution and provides that "the judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish" (A Brief Overview of the Supreme Court, 2008). The jurisdiction of the Court, Article III [section]2 of the U.S. Constitution, extends "to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority" (A Brief Overview of the Supreme Court, 2008).

49 Legal and Financial Issues in Small Hospital Failure: A Theoretical Framework for Avoiding Closure. - Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Auteur : Ethical and Regulatory Issues Journal of Legal
Genre : Droit
ABSTRACT The impact of the Prospective Payment System and increased enrollment in HMOs and PPOs has placed greater pressures on hospitals for discounts. In a market characterized by increased price competition, the most efficient hospitals will survive and others fail. An increase in the number and frequency of hospitals involved in merger activity suggests that merging is a way to become more efficient rather than closing. This paper presents a theoretical framework investigating the cost structure of merged and closed hospitals prior to mergers and closures and uses a cost differential model to determine all costs relevant in the decision to close or to merge. Pressure from patients and HMOs to lower costs has forced many community hospitals to consider closing. It is recommended that closing hospitals should consider merging in order to continue serving their community.

INTRODUCTION In June, 2005, the Supreme Court in Kelo v. City of New London (2) upheld the taking of property by eminent domain for the furtherance of economic development. Under the plan originally approved by the City of New London, Connecticut, land taken by eminent domain would be divided into seven parcels of land. Some parcels would be subdivided, developed and re-sold, and while litigation was pending before the Supreme Court, the New London Development Corporation ("NLDC") was negotiating a lease on other parcels to be developed in accordance with the development plan, at the rate of $1/year for 99 years. Justice Thomas, voicing one of the dissenting opinions, demonstrates the historical trend toward more frequent eminent domain foreclosures for broader reasons. The court however, did not address an ancillary but possibly material tax consequence: if a private party then subse
