Your first task is to post your own Key Assignment Outline (Code of Conduct Plan) to the discussion area so that other students are able to review your plan. Attach your document, and include any notes you feel are appropriate.
Your ethical code of conduct plan which will be incorporated into your companyâ€™s international plan should include the different concepts and ideas that have been discussed over the past several weeks in this course. You are to submit a detailed plan covering your operations both nationally and internationally in addition to the conduct of its employees, vendors, board of directors, and its business operations overall. The following points need to be addressed in your ethical code of conduct plan:
Â· The legal regulations of conducting business overseas

Â· Distinguishing between right and wrong in business dealings and when an action is legal
Â· Identifying the issues surrounding the motivation behind unethical or illegal business operations when the consequences are properly documented
Â· The ethical responsibilities of companies in the marketplace if they are a monopoly or oligopoly.
Anything else that you deem important to support your ethical code of conduct plan. The code of conduct plan should be structured so as to be easily navigable for employees; including headings for each section, a clear description of expected and required behavior, training requirements, method of reporting of unethical or illegal behavior, and consequences of unethical or illegal behavior.
The deliverable length is 1,250 words. Include a cover page and reference page with all of your resources cited in APA format.
