Offering more theory than other texts, ETHICS IN THE WORKPLACE offers readings and more depth of coverage on topics central to studies. Students learn why ethics and philosophy are relative to business through discussion of the theories as well as readings. Cases are drawn from recent journal articles to pique students' interest in whether what happens legally should have happened morally. Study questions at the end of each section and reading test a student's knowledge of the issue and probe deeper into the ethical issues that will face them in the business world.
