The standard form of response given by the system causes inefficiency in dealing with several acts which are all labelled with the name “crime” (Hillyard & Tombs, 2007). Besides, many events causing serious harms to the individuals and society have been ignored or not been handled properly. Rape is a type of violent and safety crime as it is related to the personal safety of the janitors in an occupational environment, but the supports given in the existing data and laws are minimal under the term of crime (Hillyard & Tombs, 2007). Sexual assault, the issue mentioned in the night rape video, is one of the issues that is described to be “marginal” in crime laws, policies, enforcement of laws or even academic discussion. This creates disadvantages especially to the weak who are the majority in encountering such criminal acts and also causes multiple harms (Box, 1983,
Their goal is to get them off the roads before such accidents can happen. If you are pulled over under the suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol you will be given a roadside test. There is a blood alcohol limit in most states that you have to be under or you can be charged with a DWI. In addition to legal issues for your actions you will face the Department of Motor Vehicles suspending or revoking your driver 's license. If you refuse to take the test that
Conspiracy also presents one of the three situations in which corporate officials and employees may face criminal liability under federal law even though they themselves did not commit, and perhaps did not even know of, the misconduct of other officers or employees. Thus, though an officer or employee has no direct hand in the matter, he is liable for foreseeable offenses committed by one of his co-conspirators in furtherance of their common scheme. The second situation occurs when the official or employee either instructs another to commit a federal offense or aids and abets another in the commission of a federal offense, or takes some action after the fact to conceal the commission of a federal offense by another. Like conspiracy, liability for procuring or aiding and abetting the offense of another focuses on conduct committed before the commission of the underlying substantive
What does Reiman mean in arguing that the current criminal justice system works to maintain a class of criminals? Do you agree or disagree that our corrections system fails to rehabilitate and fails to deter crime? Today we live in a world where everyday around us crimes are being committed. The crimes are part of everyday 's life of society. People work in different positions, at different places with different working environment.
The duty to be a whistle-blower over rides the duty that you have to your client or employer. The failure to report unethical or dangerous behaviour of an employer can result in the revoking of your licence, even if it does not result in serious injury or loss of life. (Bouville, 2007) What is whistle-blowing?
1. Some industries, like the transportation industry, mining industry, and construction industry, requires all employees to undergo drug testing. This is made to ensure that they do not only keep themselves safe but as well as others since they work serving the public and use types of machinery. 2. Substance use can lead to absenteeism, poor quality of work and carelessness.
Although this could be a misrepresentation of the harmful effects of alcohol, but it could also mean that the addicts may be willing to engage in activities to reduce their exposure to alcohol. Binge drinking may lead to injuries, sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted pregnancies and brain damage. Thus, there is a need to come up with workshops which deal with these cases. Evidently, the victims would find it as an opportunity to refrain from excessive consumption of alcohol. These workshops may also attract potential perpetrators and victims of sexual assault to ensure that they are taught on how to protect or prevent themselves from sexual
This drug, Soma, is abused although it is required by the government to lead up to the events of the drug taking a negative effect on the people to show how much they have been living unaware of their surroundings. American’s are often found making the decisions to engage in the use of drugs or alcohol which often leads to the abuse of these substance that have a negative effect not only on their bodies and lives but on the lives of people within their families, community or even a slight effect on the world. Although people may not think of these substances as a bad influence one should consider all aspects of their decision before engaging in these activities where it could affect more than just themselves and be considerate to others as
Confidentiality is an important matter across various different professional fields, including in medicine, finance, business, law, education, government, counseling and technology. In some cases, people may be fined, sued or even subject to legal punishments such as incarceration if confidentiality is breached. However, the social workers are required to disclose confidential information about their client without his/her consent if the individual threatens to harm himself/herself, or others. Basically, this action limits a client’s right to self-determination against his/her wishes. Yet, the social worker would be ask to breach confidentiality agreements when one is pursuing involuntary psychiatric hospitalization of a troubled client; or social contact with a former client (Company, 2016).
Vulnerable consumers — whether patients in need or time-strapped clinicians — are more likely to be misled. There is also a need, therefore, for a more nuanced understanding of the interaction between marketing practices and preexisting human vulnerabilities to this mismarketing. Ethical Question Should companies market a medication for the treatment of a disorder when the medication has not received formal approval from the relevant national regulatory body? Possible Answers: Yes, as long as empirical evidence exists that supports the drug’s use toward the treatment of a given disorder, it is the company’s right to make this information known — whether or not national regulatory bodies have formally weighed in on the evidence. No, the absence of a formal indication may suggest that there is inadequate evidence that the drug is effective and that it does not have a problematic safety profile.
The safety of the employees and clients is the number one protocol. Some of the ethical dilemmas include discrimination, racism and deception just to name a few. Some clinical workers may have to break the ethical code of conduct by falsifying information, withholding information, give misleading information just to gain important information needed from their client. Not only is the social workers ethical code of conduct an issue but it also conflicts with the law, workplace regulation and polices hindering the full capability of the social worker duty to keep clients information confidential. This includes sharing client’s information with co- workers or to those outside of the workplace.
E/M codes tell what was done in the office. Everything that the doctor or physician has done is documented, and coded. If a certain thing was not done then it should not be coded, and charged for that is considered fraud. Also everything that is done in the office must be documented, and coded using the E/M codes. If the E/M coding was done incorrectly the person would get in trouble for fraud, and not only that the office would have a bad reputation, and other insurance companies wouldn 't probably want to go through that office anymore.
Why we should incarcerate drug users Currently one of the less heated but still talked about debates is the issue of what we should do with those who have been caught using illegal substances. Some people say that we should be giving them rehab, and some say that they deserve to be in their. Both sides have their points, but the evidence points towards incarceration being a better option. The reason our judicial system incarcerates drug abusers are because enforcement will discourage drug use, it will keep them away from innocent people, and it will punish the addicts so they know not to do it again. While there are many reasons to be for the legalization of drugs, many people forget that the reason they’re illegal is to discourage drug
Violations of this law may include disciplinary actions, criminal penalties and fines, and possibly imprisonment. To conduct this investigation, the first step I would need to take is to find out whether HIPAA trainings were conducted though all the staff members at this hospital. Many people violate HIPAA laws without even being aware that they are in contravention. Ultimately, it is the hospital’s responsibility to ensure that their staff members are trained on these laws to ensure compliance, and reduce violations. Although the lack of awareness of HIPAA violation laws is not an excuse, this is also a matter to be taken into consideration before concluding my final decision.
