2ETHICAL ISSUES IN THE ORGANIZATIONThe effect on company:The above table has two attributes and their effects on the five stakeholders associatedwith the business of the company. The company is aware of the unpaid overtime done by theworkers. This payable over time of the workers are helping the company to gain more profitwit using less manpower and less cost. These are increasing the profit margin of thecompany. The ethical dilemma arises when the matter can be seen from the perspectives ofother stakeholders.The effect on employees:The employees are working after their shift time, and they are doing this to assuretheir job security. According to Åkerstedt and Kecklund (2017), this article this behaviourindicates that the company policy is not sustainable enough and is not employee friendly. Thetheory of the company plays a vital role in the growth of the company. This bad humanresource policy can lead to the internal conflict.

The companymay face other legal issues regarding the labour law.Problems on both long term and short term basis:The workers are working for the extra hours. The work life balance of the employeesis not justified.

The industry is getting benefits from the com[any. The increased productivity withthe quality is making the company to hold a good position in the industry, and thecompetition is growing. In this situation, according to Clarke and Boersma (2017), thecompany may enjoy the excellent position in the market, however, due to the internalconflicts the company may lose its place in the market. The Cousino and Mednick (2016)article state that, during the downfall of the company for the internal conflicts, there is nosuch trend that the industry supports that company by its past goodwill.Effects on clients:Clients are one of the critical stakeholders in the process.
