What is ‘ethical implication’? What are examples of this?
It’s what you get when ethics disagrees with a company’s business. When people talk about ethical implications in regards to companies, they typically use the term to refer to some sort of public scandal and/or controversy that arises when it becomes clear that a corporation is knowingly infringing on one or more aspects of its society’s morals and beliefs.
Examples include things like organized labor abuses, discrimination against an ethnic group, human rights violations (forced labour), union busting, child slave labour among many other things. Much like with any social issue or political issue there are always going to be people who argue for one side and then there are always going to be people arguing for the other side too. But regardless of which side you’re on there are always going to be ethical implications.
