The military and the government security organs normally apply numerous methods in obtaining critical information about criminal activities. Some of these techniques are considered acceptable by the human rights and other non-governmental organizations while others are considered as violating the human rights as stated by the constitution of major countries and states. There has been a strong debate on the use of these techniques and many have defined them as torture.
The code of ethics and conduct is a written set of rules and regulations that provides guidance to employees of an organization on how to conduct themselves and carry out their duties in line with the organization’s principles. The code of ethics and conduct is also be backed up by suitable disciplinary actions. A code of ethics and conducts helps employees deal with ethical issues and other gray areas that they face as they execute their daily activities.

The provincial government supplements the agency’s budget by paying for the service work my agency does for their clients. The 9:00 am time slot has been reserved for health ministry and child protection authority referrals. It is prepaid by the provincial government. By booking an EAP client in a provincial government slot the agency is illegally profiting because they are getting paid twice for one client. According to BCACC code of ethics (2014) the RCC will “avoid exploitation of others for personal, professional, or financial gain” (p. 7), it is my responsibility to act with the “highest integrity possible in every situation” (BCACC Code of Ethics, 2008, p. 7). Thus, I would have to avoid conflicts of interest between me, my agency, and my supervisor. I would seek advisory from my association or an external supervisor regarding this conflict. I am also concerned about the well-being of the provincial government’s clients (Board of Directors, 2014, p. 6), and their right for counselling service.
Daley (1972) wrote an article in the Personnel and Guidance Journal calling for a reform in counseling hiring and electing practices within the American Personnel and Guidance Association (APGA), later known as the American Counseling Association (ACA). The crystal stair terminology Dr. Daley refers to (p. 494) is a saying that illustrates a life that is full of hardships, a climb to the proverbial top that is neither easy or smooth. While Dr. Daley remained hopeful that a tide was starting to turn, over 40 years later, progress has been lackluster. According to the American Psychological Association (2015), racial and ethnic minority groups account for less than one-fifth of the mental health workforce in 2013. This indicates the crystal stairs are still full of hardships for minority practitioners and clients within the profession.
At the end of the last century, accountants began to organize and become a profession as state societies and boards of accounting debuted. At that time a few companies began to issue financial statements; however, there were no established standards, codes of ethics, or generally accepted principles. Practitioners wishing to represent the economic reality of an entity had to rely on professional judgement. Over time, the profession evolved so that committiees emerged to address these issues, and practitioners voluntarily abided by their guidance.
The Austin Technology Council is a non-profit entity that interacts with over 280 different tech and life sciences companies on a day-to-day basis. The Council is looked after by a number of boards and committees and overseas the Austin Technology Council Foundation, a non-profit foundation that nurtures STEM learning opportunities in Austin youths. Not only that, but ATC has a very lucrative partnership with the City of Austin and has to complete a set number of community focused events and reports to retain city approval and continued endorsement. All of this being said, one would think that an entity such as this would have a formal, written code of ethics. This would, however, be woefully incorrect. ATC does not have a written code of ethics,

After reading and meditating on the IRA Code of Ethics and the COE’s Conceptual Framework, I was enlightened on how far I have come in my 4 years of teaching. Although I exhibit and display many of the IRA Code of Ethics, there are still areas in my professional practices that need improvement. The COE’s Conceptual Framework (2015) states “we believe that all students can learn and that highly effective, innovative and collaborative teaching and administration maximizes best practices as well as student learning and achievement. Effective teachers and administrators are highly educated, skilled, committed and compassionate; they ensure all students learn to the best of their ability”(p.1). I agree with this statement. I believe my strength
The Ethics Code is intended to support us in differentiating between suitable and deplorable behavior in regards to all individuals. When working with adolescents and children, the guidelines become a little more ambiguous. Adolescents require consent from a legal guardian in most cases to seek treatment, but confidentiality permits some information discussed from being released to the parent that requested the treatment. When working with youth the primary focus can include not only the ethical decision, but the legal and moral decisions, as well.
Every year, law enforcement agency around the world are promoting employees to various positions within their organization who have meet certain criteria or qualifications. Those candidates are generally based on those who have received satisfactory or above on yearly performance reviews, shown leadership skills, taken further educational or career training classes, or have continuously gone above and beyond during their employment.

Transitioning from one role to another is not always the easiest as many individuals must prove their worth to others by showing them that they are highly
The Intelligence Community has had successes and failures, many of which have made history. One of the most prominent failures in U.S history was the attacks on September 11, 2011. Now most people would start to read this essay and think they know everything about what happened that day because it has been so publicized. However, for me it was different. Yes, I was alive when it happened, but I was too young to understand. The September 11th attacks have been of particular interest to me due to the fact that they happened right in my backyard. One of them even occurred in the same state in which I live. For this reason I wanted to know why an event of this magnitude occured in the U.S. The safety of Americans has changed since then leaving many people affected. The collection and analysis of intelligence in our nation changed dramtically after the 9/11 attacks.
"Our results indicate that the informal methods ("manager sets an example" or "social norms of the organization") are likely to yield greater commitment with respect to both employee attitudes than formal methods ("training courses on the subject of ethics") (Adam, et al, 2004).
