According to Croxford” Ethical accounting failure has continued to occur in multinational companies in spite of the increased legislation, enhanced corporate governance programs, and greater attention on business ethics by the academic community.” (Croxford, 2010) According to his research, (Croxford, 2010) believed “that accounting professional was discriminated against based on their age, culture, gender, and education.” Multinational corporations have been facing ethical failures scandals for many years.
