This book provides a comprehensive, authoritative, and thought-provoking examination of the ethical issues encountered by accountants working in the industry, public practice, nonprofit service, and government. Gordon Klein's, Ethics in Accounting: A Decision-Making Approach, helps students understand all topics commonly prescribed by state Boards of Accountancy regarding ethics literacy. Ethics in Accounting can be utilized in either a one-term or two-term course in Accounting Ethics.
A contemporary focus immerses readers in real world ethical questions with recent trending topics such as celebrity privacy, basketball point-shaving, auditor inside trading, and online dating. Woven into chapters are tax-related issues that address fraud, cheating, confidentiality, contingent fees and auditor independence. Duties arising in more commonplace roles as internal auditors, external auditors, and tax practitioners are, of course, examined as well.
