Ethical Issues in Business

Ethical Issues in Business The basis of the issue lies in the way organizations handle pension especially in the recent times. In contrast to the earlier years when corporations provided pension to all employees, the modern corporations have diverted these funds which mostly end up in the account of the CEO. Currently, employees have been forced into risky pension plans which they pay by themselves, while the CEOS enjoy tax free pension in their retirement days. It is unethical for corporations to deny employees a formidable pension plan while exclusively diverting all the money meant for this to CEOs.
