Bad News on Business Ethics


You would have thought that business ethics would be on the uptick given our recent corporate past, but unfortunately not the case according to a story on the National Business Ethics Survey. For employment law practitioners, the following was certainly not a good report:
The two most common types of misconduct observed were abusive or intimidating behaviour towards employees (seen by 21 per cent) and lying to employees, customers, suppliers, and the public (seen by 19 per cent).
Both behaviors are a step toward more, not less, difficult employment litigation. Check out the whole story at the British Management Issues website.
