From this week’s required readings, review Hough, C., Green, K., Plumlee, G. (2015). Impact of ethics environment and organizational trust on employee engagement (Links to an external site.). Journal of Legal, Ethical Regulatory Issues, 18(3), 45-62.
Review and provide a written summary of the article completing the following requirements:
Discuss how the company you work for (or if you are not currently employed, use a past employer) addresses ethical issues.
Does the firm have a formal code of ethics?
Is there a stated policy regarding bribery?
Do employees trust upper management—why or why not?
What recommendations would you make (based on the content of Modules 1-3) to leadership to improve trust and foster a healthy ethical environment?

Introduction to Applied Professional Research
Accounting Assignment Help The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) is an organization of CPAs in the United States. Prior to 1972, the AICPA had a major influence on standard setting. In 1972, the FASB began standard setting and was created independent of the AICPA. However, the AICPA remains interested in standard setting. It has a group called the Accounting Standards Executive Committee (AcSEC) that forms opinions on current topics. The AcSEC issues opinions that sometimes agree with, and other times disagree with, the FASB’s thoughts.
Locate an AcSEC position (comment letters to other organizations).
Select one letter to the FASB, summarize the topic covered by that letter, and indicate the position taken by the AcSEC.
Do you agree with the position taken by the AcSEC? Why, or why not?
How much weight do you feel the FASB should put on these AcSEC letters in its due process procedure? Why?

1. For several years former US presidential candidate Al Gore (“An Inconvenient Truth” and more recently “An Inconvenient Sequel” ) tried to raise awareness about global warming and the roles of business, government, and industry. Whether he and others will have an impact in the US or abroad is yet to be fully seen; however, the new findings on the melting of the Antarctic ice shelf resulting if rising ocean levels, fires out West, and increases in hurricane activity may help focus attention. As other issues fade and, hopefully, the Covid-19 pandemic passes, the environment may remain as a prime-time news issue. And, certainly, the business sector faces pressures from both internal and external stakeholders when the banner of environmental protection is hoisted. The question of corporate moral responsibility for the environment can fade from the spotlight until a public figure promotes the message or an environmental crisis erupts and CNN or 60 Minutes or some other news agency appears at the corporate headquarters demanding answers with cameras running.
Consider the material beginning with page 297 in our textbook. Beyond the legislated mandates (EPA, among others), how far should corporate responsibility for the environment extend? For example, should trees, lakes, oceans, and animals have rights? Why, or why not? Could there be such a thing as a “one-level-removed-stakeholder” that would include “non-human” stakeholders?
2. Chapter 6 (values based moral leadership) and this class offer us an opportunity to reflect on the basic tenets behind this country, beyond our system of commerce, finance, education, international relations, and healthcare; and to ponder where our businesses and nation may be headed during this pandemic.
During crisis and political campaigns, the national television media called attention to “Fact Checkers” and “Truth Squads” (and a variety o other titles) with the level of scrutiny intense. Whether this morphed into “fake news” would be an interesting research topic. Keeping in a business mode, you’ve read (or at least read about) Sarbanes-Oxley—the idea being that a piece of federal legislation can address corporate accounting moral obligations and solve ethical ills.
