This course is a thought-provoking discussion of ethical issues, from the CPA Code of Professional Conduct and elsewhere, in accounting, tax and business. The course is a plea for ethical behavior above and beyond the rules and contracts. It reminds you to pause and think beyond your initial reaction….there may be more to the situation. The presenter shares personal experiences with ethically challenging situations and their resolution.
