Blending theory with real-life applications, the 8th Edition of LAW AND ETHICS IN THE BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT presents modern issues and the latest in case law for an exciting and thought-provoking text. Rather than shying away from controversial topics, it encourages lively classroom debate on everything from privacy and workers' rights to diversity and stereotyping. Insightful cases, end-of-chapter questions, historical quotes, and chapter projects sharpen critical thinking skills, while a wealth of interactive assignments like role plays, mock trials, roundtables, and more prepare you for the ethical and legal dilemmas of the business world.
