What would you do?

1. A coworker complains to you that he is sick of seeing the company pollute the waters of a nearby stream by dumping runoff water into it from the manufacturing process. He plans to send an anonymous email to the EPA to inform the agency of the situation. What would you do?

I would support him because I see his cause is real and need to sort out the problem. Polluting the water can have huge impact on both animals and people living around the river, and company that pollute just for their own benefit is not acceptable.

2. As a relatively new hire within a large multinational firm, you are extremely pleased with the many challenging assignments that have come your way. Now another new hire with whom you have become friends is seeking your input on an important decision that she must make within the next week. She has been challenged to cut costs in her department by outsourcing a large portion of the departmentís work to an offshore resource firm that has an excellent reputation. Your friend would remain with the firm to oversee the out- sourcing work. What advice would you offer your friend?

I would advise her to search on company that has not only excellent reputation on services and but also have good reputation on how they treated their worker. I personally think that treating worker well should be the first priority for any company, because worker deserve it and they are one who give path to success for the company.

 

Case:

E-Verify

1. Do you support the implementation of enhancements such as photo matching and access to additional government databases to improve the accuracy of the E-Verify system? Why or why not?

I support the implementation of enhancements such as photo matching and access to additional government database. Because I think E-Verify is good program to track authorized worker and also it prevents from unauthorized worker to work legally in United States. Not implementing e-verity can allow thousands of migrant worker to work illegally in big company without any valid paper, which can create shortage of employment opportunity for people actually from the united states. However, implementing photo matching and access government database should not be used in the way, that can bring discrimination among the workers.

 

2. If you were the owner of a small business, would you use the E-Verify system to screen prospective workers? Why or why not?

I would not use E-Verify if I own small shop or restaurant. However, if I own different small business that involve professional worker, then I definitely use E-Verify.

 

3. Would you favor mandatory use of the E-Verify system at large corporations and government agencies? Why or why not?

Yes, I would favor mandatory use of the E-Verify system at large corporations. Because I believe most large company hire professional workers and not using E-Verify can put number of migrant worker without paper to work in those company, which will create more difficult for actual American who study and live here to get job.

 

Problem with suppliers

1. What responsibility does an organization have to ensure that its suppliers and business partners behave ethically? To whom is this responsibility owed?

Suppliers and business partners should make some agreement and policies that should ensure the proper treat and protect right of workers. In this context, business organization has more responsibility to ensure workers right as they have more power to control and can terminate contract with suppliers if they fail to follow.

2. How can an organization monitor the business practices of its suppliers and business partners to determine if they are behaving in an ethical manner?

Organization can hire people that can monitor the suppliers warehouse, can ask suppliers for monthly report on supplier operation and its worker, can take survey annually from worker on how supplier partner treat their workers, sometime can use CCTV camera installed in supplier warehouse if suppliers agrees to share.

3. Is it good business practice to refuse to do business with a supplier who provides good quality materials at a low cost but who behaves in an unethical manner? How can senior management justify its decision to do business instead with a supplier who provides lower- quality or higher-priced materials but behaves in an ethical manner?

Yes, it is good business practice to refuse to do business with a supplier who behaves in an unethical manner. Senior management defend his decision by saying the proper treatment of workers is first priority of our company. The supplier that involves in unethical manner can take someone live if the worker is not treated well and our company cannot and will not support those company just for the sake of lower cost. We stand for the right of the workers and cannot do business with company who failed to follow workers right.
