This first draft assignment is the second step in the process for writing your Benchmark – Ethical Issues in Business: Final Report and Analysis assignment.
For this assignment, refer to the “Ethical Issues in Business: Preliminary Research Table” you completed earlier in the course. Using the research sources in the table to support your positions, Write a background summary report of 1,000 to 1,500 words on the selected business and the ethical crisis the company has faced. Address the following in your report:
- Company Background: Summarize relevant information regarding the business and its history.
- Crisis Details: Summarize the ethical crisis details. What stakeholders were involved? What actions did they take? What were the results of those actions?
- Ethical Issues and the Law: Explain the ethical issues surrounding the crisis. Did the company act within the basic tenants of the law? Include any related legal issues.
Support your main ideas using the APA-formatted, in-text citations from your “Ethical Issues in Business: Preliminary Research Table.” At least one reference for each of the identified topics is required in the report draft.
Your instructor will provide feedback on the first draft of your report for you to review and incorporate into your Benchmark – Ethical Issues in Business: Final Report and Analysis assignment due later in the course.
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
