Examining the Link Between Ethical Leadership and Employee Misconduct: The Mediating Role of Ethical Climate [Book Review]
Journal of Business Ethics 95 (1):7-16 (2010)
AbstractDrawing on theory and research on ethical leadership and ethical climate, we examine ethical climate as a mediator of the relationship between ethical leadership and employee misconduct. Using a sample of 1,525 employees and their supervisors in 300 units in different organizations, we find support for our hypothesized model. We discuss theoretical and practical implications of these findings.
