Introduction
Recently, I have noticed some inconsistencies with some of our employees’ behavior. Several employees show up late and their time sheets are checked in on time. I have observed that offices like the accountants are open at all times and sometimes overnight. Another inconsistency is that I have noticed that the supervisors tend to pay men more while women doing the same job get paid less. I have also noticed that there is a large stack of sexual harassment claims that go unanswered and are not investigated. We are experiencing several unethical and illegal behaviors from employee and something needs to be done about this. We need to come up with tougher rules of conduct.

Purpose
The purpose of this memorandum is to address unethical or illegal behaviors in the workplace. This will be done by looking at the background of what constitutes illegal or unethical behaviors, types of behaviors that can be defined as such, and the causes of unethical or illegal behaviors.
