Establishing and reinforcing a company’s ethical culture and values always represents a challenge. But you need to understand historically how we got where we are in order to appreciate the rich fabric that makes up today’s complex workplace. From ethics theory to U.S. employment law history, from Sarbanes-Oxley to corporate governance standards, this PowerPoint presentation whisks you from the 1930s through to the first decade of the new millennium with an insightful overview of the laws that influence today’s business decisions. We’ll cover the real nature of employment-at-will, the rise of labor unions and their historical appeal to workers, the difference between progressive discipline and “summary offenses,” and “you make the call” workplace ethical scenarios that are sure to raise debate among your staffers. Finally, we’ll touch on ethical considerations in an international context, the environmental justice movement, and even pay trends in executive compensation. Turn to this guide for an on-the-mark overview of our labor history, employment laws, and our evolving workplace. (72 slides)
