This paper defines business ethics. It specifically examines a case study in which business ethics was violated through water contamination. The paper examines the lawsuit regarding the Ringwood, Ill community members who filed a lawsuit against the Rohm and Haas plant. The pursuits of business interests by Rohm and Hass, at the cost of humanitarian and environmental interests, are also discussed.

From the Paper:

"This report indicates new ethical issues on the horizon for Haas and Rohm. Originally unethical business behavior has already been established. However, further biased or jaded study results, and distrust from the government provides a full-scale implication of a cover up in progress. And cover-ups are not good for credibility from a public perspective, and similarly from an ethical perspective. Cover-ups are among the most blatant and egregious business ethics violations, because they imply both unethical behavior as well as awareness of unethical behavior, as well as allowing it to continue, as well as misleading the public to obscure this truth. This is truly looking more and more like a case of extended ethical violations and a general culture of ethical misconduct at Rohm and Haas, in terms of the water contamination they have directly contributed to in McCollum County."
