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.
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. ] ]

User: 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.)

Weegy: I am a school nurse. After a few years, I met my teacher (a registered nurse) way back to college. I personally do not like her because she is strict and firm in teaching and almost all of my classmates do not like her as well. She is so bossy. [ I found out that she is a biology teacher in my school. There is this student who is unwell and my assessment is that she is experiencing hyperventilation. My ex teacher helped her and she was instructing me what to do. I know for myself what to do. She do it in a bossy way. I like to remind her that she is a teacher in school not a school nurse though she's also a nurse. She do it for how many times now. She must be sensitive in her words and the way she delivered it. It's okay to help but she can do it in a nice manner. She must also know her job description that she is a teacher in school not a school nurse. Her job is to teach. ]

Could you expand a bit more on the how you feel that the current process for GAAP is sufficient? Do you feel that the current process being slow and deliberate is a good thing? Also, how is the government currently involved in GAAP and what is their role?
Weegy: Careful planning holds the key to success. [ Looking at the accounting implications alone, there are four key stages to the IFRS conversion process: Impact Assessment : identifying potential GAAP and disclosure differences that could impact the business. Solution Development: further research is conducted in the business, looking at the underlying contractual arrangements and business operations to conclude on GAAP differences. Implementation: applying research to derive conclusions and calculate differences. Delivery: drafting new statutory accounts and accounting policies. ] User: Could you expand a bit more on the how you feel that the current process for GAAP is sufficient? Do you feel that the current process being slow and deliberate is a good thing? Also, how is the government currently involved in GAAP and what is their role? Weegy: These are used to prepare, present and report financial statements for a wide variety of entities, including publicly traded and privately held companies, non-profit organizations, and government authorities, [ with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) establishing rules for public and private companies, and non-profit organizations; the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) determining a different set of assumptions, principles for local and state governments - and the Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB) performing a similar role for federal government entities. Although the SEC has a stated goal of moving from US GAAP to the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), the provisions of which differ considerably from GAAP - progress has been slow and uncertain. ] User: why has it been slow Weegy: The Staff report states that adopting IFRS as authoritative guidance in the United States is not supported by the vast majority of participants in the US capital markets, [ and would not be consistent with the methods of incorporation followed by other major capital ...

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.
Weegy: For example, if you happen to meet an employee of Company X at a bar, even if the employee isn't working, how you perceive your interaction with that employee will affect how you perceive Company X, and therefore Company X's brand. [ [ Every employee can affect your company's brand, not just the front-line employees that are paid to talk to your customers." "A company's culture and its company brand are really just two sides of the same coin. The brand may lag the culture at first, but eventually it will catch up. Your culture is your brand. ] (More)
