Corporate Governance and Legal Frameworks
Corporate Governance and Legal Frameworks provides students with a foundation of ethics that can be applied within the workplace. The book begins by introducing South Africa’s legal system, and proceeds to explore what organisational ethics is. In so doing, it unpacks the various levels of ethics and decision-making, and how these are applied in workplace culture. Because all organisations operate within legal frameworks, the book also explains how these function in practice – in particular, it focuses on the Companies Act 71 of 2008 and various regulatory bodies that exist. In addition to corporate governance, the title discusses topics like labour legislation, as well as occupational health and safety. It concludes by considering the effect that the environment has on a business’s ability to enact business strategies, while highlighting the importance of complying with both local and global regulations. As such, students will be equipped to pursue a career as a governance professional, and to apply ethical principles in the workplace.
