Business Ethics definition

Since Hasbro Canada has been designated most ethical, I thought it would be nice to see what is defined as business ethics in Canada.   

 

""Business Ethics" can be defined as the critical, structured examination of how people & institutions should behave in the world of commerce. In particular, it involves examining appropriate constraints on the pursuit of self-interest, or (for firms) profits, when the actions of individuals or firms affects others.

For a bit more about this, see the blog entry here: Ethics: Definition.
For other ethics-related definitions, look here: Ethics Definitions.

Timothy Van Cleave's insight:

I love this page that she put up.

I am doing a project for my class on Business Procedures and it has been a good page to add to my scoops!

I just recently discovered her scoop.

Thanks Elaine.

The Cheerleaders Rise Up - Sexism, Wages, Power & Football, Circa 2014

The Cheerleaders Rise Up - Sexism, Wages, Power & Football, Circa 2014 | Wages | Scoop.it

In 2014, the cheerleaders revolted. This January, rookie NFL cheerleader Lacy T. kicked things off when she filed a class action lawsuit against the Oakland Raiders, alleging that:

the team fails to pay its Raiderettes minimum wage,withholds their pay until the end of the season,imposes illegal fines for minor infractions (like gaining 5 pounds), and forces cheerleaders to pay their own business expenses (everything from false eyelashes to monthly salon visits). 


Within a month, Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader Alexa Brenneman had filed a similar suit against her team, claiming that the Ben-Gals are paid just $2.85 an hour for their work on the sidelines. And Tuesday, five former Buffalo Bills cheerleaders filed suit against their own team, alleging that the Buffalo Jills were required to perform unpaid work for the team for about 20 hours a week.

Good for them.  From all appearance, this sounds like a very creepy, patriarchal abuse of women, sexuality, pay and power.  It goes with the companion post in "Careers & Self-Aware Strength"  Do You Have What It Takes to Be a Secretary? A 1959 Flashback   featuring 50's style wage sexism that is still around today, 2014.  


For example of the creepy sexism 2014 style, note "NFL teams like the Raiders extend the patriarch metaphor by encouraging cheerleaders to see the team as a “family” (not an employer), refer to their squad mates as “sisters” (not co-workers), and implying that they’ll break the “sisterhood bond” if they step out of line."

Even creepier, "NFL teams...enforce expectations for the way their cheerleaders look ...while rewarding them, not with money, but with the supposed prestige of appearing as one of their city’s most desirable women."

It's time to put a stop to it, and let's hope the law is on their side. "We've still got a long way to go, baby!" ~ D
