    The Federal Sentencing Guidelines for Organizations: A Framework for Ethical Compliance. [REVIEW]O. C. Ferrell, Debbie Thorne LeClair & Linda Ferrell - 1998 - Journal of Business Ethics 17 (4):353-363.
    After years of debate over the importance of ethical conduct in organizations, the federal government has decided to institutionalize ethics as a buffer to prevent legal violations in organizations. The key requirements of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines (FSG) are outlined, and suggested actions managers should adopt to improve ethical compliance are presented. An effective compliance program is more a process and commitment than a specific blueprint for conduct. The organization has the responsibility to create an organizational climate to reduce misconduct. (...)

    The Responsibility and Accountability of CEOs: The Last Interview with Ken Lay.O. C. Ferrell & Linda Ferrell - 2011 - Journal of Business Ethics 100 (2):209-219.
    Responsibility and accountability of CEOs has been a major ethical concern over the past 10 years. Major ethical dilemmas at Enron, Worldcom, AIG, as well as other well-known organizations have been at least partially blamed on CEO malfeasance. Interviews with Ken Lay, CEO of Enron, after his 2006 fraud convictions provides an opportunity to document his perceived role in the demise of Enron. Possibly no other CEO has had as much impact on the scrutiny and legalization of business ethics as (...)

    Sarbanes–Oxley Section 406 Code of Ethics for Senior Financial Officers and Firm Behavior.Saurabh Ahluwalia, O. C. Ferrell, Linda Ferrell & Terri L. Rittenburg - 2018 - Journal of Business Ethics 151 (3):693-705.
    Sarbanes–Oxley Section 406 requires a code of ethics for top financial and accounting officers in public companies. The objective of this research is to discover the impact of a financial code of ethics on firm behavior. We performed a longitudinal tracking of firm adoption of a financial code of ethics starting in 2005. We checked these companies’ codes again in 2011 to confirm their continued implementation. Financial restatements were used as a dependent variable to measure improved financial reporting after the (...)

    A Critique of Giving Voice to Values Approach to Business Ethics Education.Tracy L. Gonzalez-Padron, O. C. Ferrell, Linda Ferrell & Ian A. Smith - 2012 - Journal of Academic Ethics 10 (4):251-269.
    Mary Gentile’s Giving Voice to Values presents an approach to ethics training based on the idea that most people would like to provide input in times of ethical conflict using their own values. She maintains that people recognize the lapses in organizational ethical judgment and behavior, but they do not have the courage to step up and voice their values to prevent the misconduct. Gentile has developed a successful initiative and following based on encouraging students and employees to learn how (...)

    Expectations and Attitudes Toward Gender-Based Price Discrimination.O. C. Ferrell, Dimitri Kapelianis, Linda Ferrell & Lynzie Rowland - 2018 - Journal of Business Ethics 152 (4):1015-1032.
    This study explores consumer expectations and attitudes related to gender-based price discrimination. Although much research has focused on pay inequalities and gender diversity, considerably less attention has been focused on situations in which men and women are charged different prices based on gender. In two studies, expectations and attitudes toward gender-based price discrimination are examined. In Study 1, two scenarios related to prices at hair salon and dry cleaning services were manipulated to measure expectations and attitudes toward gender-based price discrimination. (...)

    Conflicts of Interest Arising From the Prudent Investor Rule: Ethical Implications for Over-the-Counter Derivative Securities. [REVIEW]John M. Clark, Linda Ferrell & O. C. Ferrell - 2003 - Journal of Business Ethics 47 (2):165 - 173.
    The Prudent Investor Rule creates a potential ethical dilemma for investment advisors selling over-the-counter financial products issued by their firms. The "opportunity" to defraud investors using complex, over-the-counter derivative securities designed for client-specific risk management is much higher than for exchange traded securities. This paper emphasizes the ethical responsibility held by trustees and their organizations to eliminate potential conflict of interests through internal control and monitoring. Independent evaluations of the performance of investment advisors and independent appraisals of complex over-the-counter securities (...)
