International Business Legal Environment
Instructions In a short paper, 12 pages doublespaced, discuss the following: Acme Inc., a U.S. company, does not do any business in Cuba and does not purchase from any Cuban suppliers. Acme Canada, a Canadian company, found out several years ago that a supplier outsourced the manufacture of pajamas to Cuba and that these Cuban-made pajamas were being sold in Acme’s Canadian stores. The U.S. parent company ordered the Canadian subsidiary to pull the product, but the Canadian subsidiary reported that doing so would violate Canadian law, which prohibits Canadian companies from complying with the U.S. boycott of Cuba. What should Acme U.S. do? What should Acme Canada do?
