Provide an article or example from the Internet to support. Also, put yourself in the shoes of the CEO – what would you do the day you learned about the political or legal issue?

Example of a legal issue that impacted an international business trying to do business in another country –

Workers’ rights violation by Apple’s iPhone 7 supplier Pegatron where the firm exploited the workers especially the interns with overtime work which was unpaid and the working conditions were not good.

Report details workers’ rights violations at Apple’s iPhone 7 supplier Pegatron

As the CEO of Apple, it is important to take responsibility for the actions of the suppliers/business partners though they are not directly controlled by the firm. The firm should own the issue, pay any fines as per the law and ensure that such issues are avoided in the future by signing contracts with the suppliers. If similar issues repeat in future, Apple should discontinue the partnership with Pegatron and go for more ethical suppliers.
