Role Of Ethics In Accounting

The accounting manager is concerned that the new hires may not understand how important it is to always remain ethical, especially in accounting. With the end-of-year audit quickly approaching, the manger wants to instill the importance of an ethical work environment.

For this assignment, choose a company that has had ethical issues based on an accounting issue, such as internal control issues, fraudulent activity, theft, and so forth. Create a PowerPoint presentation that you could share with new hires. For this assignment, you will complete the following:

  • Research and analyze a company that has had publicly known ethical issues either with internal controls, fraudulent activity, or theft.
  • Analyze what went wrong that caused the ethical situation and what could have been done differently to prevent the problems.
  • Make 4 recommendations or suggestions on how the company could have improved its policies and procedures to stop the unethical situation from recurring.
