Outside control in countries where economical

This preview shows page 3 out of 3 pages.

outside control in countries where economical decisions prevailed on poverty and poor conditions of the population. Within the context of the Apple situation, the difference between deciding in terms of the law or in terms of ethics is that providing guidelines and training is not sufficient to enforce basic rules such as the age workplace rule. Although ethical determinations related to the age workplace rule are broadly and globally acknowledged, legal rules are meant to regulate the workplace in a tangible and clear way. Moreover, the enforcement of the law in such cases can trigger actions to punish any immoral decision, while leaving the ethical judgement to each individual creates grey areas and blurred boundaries. This case study provides meaningful insights about how to understand the facts, arrange values to guide decisions, and constructing arguments. Apple should have applied a safer framework to promote ethical decisions and actions in the workplace. The fact that the stock price increased constantly does not justify the fact that suppliers were not controlled directly by the company. At the same time, in some countries the law and the ethics are far from each other because of the poverty conditions, which in some cases can completely override any moral principle by not enforcing age workplace rule.

    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.
