Recent reporting surrounding financial scandals, corruption and bribery in Australia has brought the topic of ‘ethics’ back into the forefront of corporate compliance programs. Many studies in ethics examine what it is, how to make ethical judgements, how to approach dilemmas and similar questions within an ethical framework. In this presentation, James Hazelton (Senior Lecturer in business ethics at Macquarie University) will discuss research in this area and how such frameworks might be extended and applied to contemporary ethical issues. He will also discuss the implications of behavioural research for ethics, such as the impact on ethical practices when workloads increase and judgements are made under fatigue. For all ACFE members and those involved in complex decision making when dealing with fraud, corruption and bribery this will be a challenging and thought provoking ethical discussion.
Dr James Hazelton has worked in the area of professional ethics for over ten years. He developed and delivers the undergraduate and postgraduate ethics units within the accounting department at Macquarie University and has published ethics-related research in international journals.
Before entering academia James worked for ten years as an auditor and risk management consultant with PriceWaterhouseCoopers in Sydney, London and New York.
