Think about an unethical business practice that you (or someone you know) have encountered at a small business.
Describe the situation, what happened, and why do you think the practice was unethical.
Describe your reaction, what did you do as a result of the unethical practice (such as quit shopping at that business, told others, filed a formal complaint, etc.)
Explain what you think the
small business owner should have done differently.
The 89 day wonder. Got its start here in Vegas in the casino industry, but has since spread to other types of businesses. It works like this. [ You have a 90-day probationary period for new hires, at the end of which, those new hires will become eligible for health insurance benefits. You hire people, then, a day, or a few days, before that probationary period ends, you let them go in order to
avoid paying said benefits. Alternately, you hire a bunch of people at the beginning of the busy season, then you cut them loose at the end because they "aren't meeting the standards of service". Nice way to get temporary help without having to pay extra by hiring people through an agency.
