The legal and ethical issues surrounding a Company

Reflecting on the concepts you have studied in the course, research a company and discuss the legal and ethical issues surrounding it. You will need to research the company through the University library. Your essay should include the following four sections: 1) Identify and discuss two to three specific laws that apply to the company. For example, the laws mentioned in the EEOC readings. 2) Apply three general legal topics that were discussed in the required readings, i.e. Appendix B. Make sure you include in-text citations to the course materials, as failing to cite your sources will result in no credit in this section. The weekly lessons are not the required readings. The required readings are listed in the lessons section under “Required Readings.” 3) Discuss how the philosophy of economist Milton Friedman may have influenced the executives of the company. 4) Identify an ethical framework other than the shareholder theory that applies to this situation and discuss how it may have influenced the executives of the company. Solyndra and British Petroleum may not be used as your company for this assignment.
