At my agency, the Children’s Village, there is not a specific policy that prohibit accepting gifts from the clients; however, there are ethical guiding standards that employees should follow in regards to client-worker relationship consistent with the NASW Code of Ethics. For instance, standard 1.06(a) recommends social workers to “avoid conflicts of interest that interfere with the exercise of professional discretion and impartial judgement” (NASW Code of Ethics, 2017, p. 10). Even though this ethical standard does not prohibit accepting gifts, it sends a clear message to social workers about the risks related to taking gifts from clients. In fact, the NASW Code of Ethics advices that accepting gifts from clients represent the risk of such action to be interpreted as bartering by the client. As a result, if the worker accepts the gift, there is a risk that the client may expect the worker to pay back with work related favors.

An efficient way to simplify the density of such relationships is to establish regulations or norms for that area. Even though this concept sounds extremely simple, it is the farthest thing from it. This process will call for the determining and explanation of human rights and who has them. It will also call into question if not everyone, then who has rights, why do they have such rights and what rights they are.

Abstract Durkheim’s idea focuses mainly on how societies are glued together and how they maintain order, stability and identity within that community, both as a community and as an individual. According to Durkheim because solidarity is a non-material social fact, changes in social structure are affected and can be seen by changes in law and legal practice. This paper seeks to illustrate how Durkheim’s notion of solidarity correlates to Singapore’s social changes and what the celebration of the Golden Jubilee this year actually means to the nation in accordance with Durkheim’s concepts.
