About This Guide

This Research Guide focuses on issues of business or corporate ethics. The terms "business" and "corporate" are typically used interchangeably. Included in this topic are general principles of ethical business practices, news about the corporate accounting scandals of 2002-03 (Enron, WorldCom and Tyco are a few of the companies involved in significant ethics scandals), and the government's response to these scandals intended to reform corporate practices, such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (Public Law 107-204).
