This can inculcate an ethical attitude in Foxconn’s employees and help employees make “right” decisions when they are in an ethical dilemma. Having an ethics code addresses the root cause of the problem, however research has shown that an ethics code is only effective when it is used as part of a comprehensive corporate ethics program (Mhonderwa, 2012).

In some jobs or industries FWA can turn out to be catastrophic while it decreases productivity immensely. - Another challenge that could be faced by employers adopting FWA is if the employees weren’t willing to adapt to such changes or weren’t able to resist any non-work temptations.
The Securities Acts and laws are in place to protect society from corrupt business practices, such as these acts committed by Sky Capital and the defendants. The defendants may have been in denial of the fraud and deceptive business practices they were using, but their impact was felt by many who had trusted them.

In addition, as a group effort, the defendants not only participated with the fraud, but encouraged the continuation of the malpractice going on.

In order to overcome this potential barrier, I will use feedback from those around me on ways that I can improve.

If a business receives a complaint about a product, the business should respond immediately and try to find a solution for the consumer as soon as possible.
