Question description

A code of ethics is an important tool for organizations. It describes the organization's ethical stance to its members and to the external environment. It can protect the organization from lawsuits, encourage resistance to unethical group and organizational pressures, and encourage ethical behavior. This assignment requires you to design a research-based code of ethics for an organization and to report it in a paper.
