Legal and Ethical Environment of Business Phase 1 DB2 Sharon Patton 5/22/2016 Having worked for this company for quite some years I have seen a few things done that I personally thought was unethical, one situation is when a supervisor would send off colored jokes to a few select coworkers, when asked not to do that he would just remove the person offended and continue to send the jokes. Finally, a coworker reported this behavior and the supervisor was reprimanded. The emails did stop. That was years ago, now email transmissions are considered “documenets” which can and will be used in a court of law. Especially in claims of sexual harassment. (Smith, 2016). One such case Holmes v. Petrovich Development Company, LLC March 11, 2011. “ The court held that the employee did not have a reasonable expectation of privacy due, in large part, to the employer's strict technology resources policy.” (WSGR, 2016). The company won the case due to this fact.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
