    Are Hotel Managers Taught to Be Aggressive in Intelligence Gathering?Patrick C. L. Chan, Jimmy H. T. Chan, Alan K. M. Au & Matthew Yeung - 2020 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 9 (2):417-424.
    The study examines the ontological similarity between the concept of competitor orientation and questionable intelligence-gathering efforts. Respondents from the hotel industry were surveyed with self-administered questionnaires. Exploratory factor analysis was carried out to identify the structure underlying variables of market orientation and ethical judgment on questionable intelligence-gathering efforts. The results suggest that the surveyed hotel managers are unable to distinguish the legitimate tactics of competitor orientation from the questionable practice of industrial espionage.

    The Green Gap of High-Involvement Purchasing Decisions: An Exploratory Study.Kevin W. K. Chu - 2020 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 9 (2):371-394.
    The environmentally friendly or ‘sustainable’ products have been launched in various markets in response to the growing concerns for the environmental deterioration and the alarming effects of climate change in past years. However, the uptake of green products does not seem to fully reflect the self-claimed pro-environmental concerns and attitudes. Consumers who profess to be environmentally conscious and believe they could help slow down environmental deterioration do not necessarily purchase eco-friendly products. This discrepancy between behaviour and attitude has been termed (...)

    Modelling Consumers’ Punishment Behaviours in Third-Party Ethically Questionable Situations.Elizabeth Dunlop, Edward Oczkowski & Mark Farrell - 2020 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 9 (2):171-192.
    This study develops and tests an empirical model of consumer punishing behaviours in third-party ethically questionable situations. The model examines the impact of perceived injustice, consumer-company identification, identification with the victim, and consumer involvement on punishing behaviours. A number of ‘real-life’ ethical scenarios are employed to generate over 1000 data responses from a self-administered questionnaire. The positive influence of perceived injustice on punishing behaviours is the most supported hypothesis of the study. The relation between consumer-company identification and punishment is in (...)

    Exploring the Role of Ethics in the Emotional Intelligence-Organizational Commitment Relationship.Monoshree Mahanta & Karabi Goswami - 2020 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 9 (2):275-303.
    Today, organizations are facing a high rate of attrition which is a serious issue for human resource managers. Gaining the commitment of employees towards their organization, though challenging, is rewarding as organizational commitment is a precursor to employee engagement. Another challenge is about maintaining an ethical climate. Ethical misconduct by organizations not only brings them a heavy monetary price but also incurs non-monetary price in terms of customer and employee attrition and diminished business reputation. In the new workplace with greater (...)

    The Relationship Between Psychological Contract and Voice Behavior—a Social Exchange Perspective.Khalid Rasheed Memon & Bilqees Ghani - 2020 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 9 (2):257-274.
    Our study explores the relationship between psychological contract and voice behavior. The study encourages promoting the development of positive voice behavior since the promotive voice behavior of employees would help the organization to grow and improve as per industry standards especially during the upcoming hi-tech era. If the knowledge workers do not show positive voice behavior, it is difficult for organizations to compete and sustain in such an era of digitalization. A cross-sectional survey was conducted for the assessment/validation of the (...)

    Creating Duty on Dominant Firm: A Case for Alternative Economic Analysis.Prabhu Aloke Narasinga - 2020 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 9 (2):225-239.
    The desirability of creating norms within the framework of law has been a challenging process in a free market economy. The principles of antitrust law enunciated by courts in abuse of dominant cases has led to ‘refusal to deal’ as a contested doctrine. When dominance is treated as legitimate aspiration and free market choices are the medium to achieve the aspirations of free market enterprises, any duty or obligation cast on the firm is considered antithetical to the spirit of free (...)

    Analyzing the Inter-Relation Between Workplace Spirituality and Constructive Deviance.Naval Garg & Anubhuti Saxena - 2020 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 9 (1):121-141.

This research examines the link between workplace spirituality and constructive deviant behavior. Literature on the issue of workplace spirituality suggests that meaningful work has the potential to increase positive organizational outcomes. This study was carried out on a purposively selected sample of 152 managers from the oil and gas industry in India. The (...)

    An Examination of Labor Unions and Firm’s Tax Ethical Behavior in the USA.Hong Weng Lei, Chansog Kim & Raymond M. K. Wong - 2020 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 9 (1):93-120.
    Prior research finds that firms with strong business ethics are less likely to be tax aggressive. Labor union is one of the key stakeholders influencing firm’s tax aggressive behavior, whereas the bargaining process between labor union and firms exhibits ethical dilemma. Although industry-wide labor union coverage is commonly used in prior study to explore the monitoring role of labor unions in constraining management’s aggressive financial and tax decisions of their associated firms, we argue that firm-specific labor unions, which represent a (...)

    Remarks on “Role of Retaliation and Value Orientation in Whistleblowing Intentions” by Dhamija & Rai.Sebastian Oelrich - 2020 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 9 (1):23-27.
    I comment on some mistakes made my Dhamija and Rai in their paper “Role of retaliation and value orientation in whistleblowing intentions.” They fail to correctly interpret the overall model statistics, the F-test, which shows that some of their models have no explanatory power. I explain and give examples to readers on how to avoid this in the future. In addition, I give some suggestions on improving on this, additional issues, as well as an alternative means to interpret the results.

Yet, little attention has been directed at the impact of leadership behavior on the aspects of workplace behaviors such as value congruence and relationship conflict. The goal of this study is to examine the influence of leader-member exchange regarding the outcomes of relationship conflict, organizational commitment, and citizenship behavior among employees with value congruence as a moderator.
