We all benefit enormously from the fact that employees exercise their power to prevent mistakes or mistakes by asking the right questions at the right time. With regard to contracting, a negotiator not only reachs an agreement between two or more parties, but also achieves a lasting agreement; The contracting parties are legally bound and held (Wade and Honeyman 2005, 7). A legally binding contract is defined as an exchange of promises or an agreement between the parties that will be implemented by law, and there is an underlying presumption for trade agreements that the parties are considering being legally bound (contracts 2007). Ethical agreements are generally not legally binding and are often more a matter of honour. However, most legally binding treaties have ethical dimensions that are written on them.

Grace and Cohen (2005, 200) describe cultural relativism as the extent to which different societies and cultures have different values and ethical norms in the economic and organizational fields. Those who adopt cultural relativism believe that all beliefs (religious, ethical, aesthetic and political) are relating to the individual within a culture. Among the types of relativism are morality (where ethics depends on the social assembly), situational (where good or evil depends on the situation) and cognitive (where truth itself has no objective standard). The legal system has a harder time defining laws with diminishing standards, and our justice system has a harder time interpreting them (Cultural Relativism – Illogical Standard 2006). Ethical agreement is usually established on moral guidelines for behaviour within an organization, at an event or during a transaction. A person usually receives the agreement before being allowed to enter or continue the transaction. Organizations often publish their ethical agreements and standards as a means of promoting trust and a declaration of intent.
