    Moral Judgment and its Impact on Business-to-Business Sales Performance and Customer Relationships.Charles H. Schwepker & David J. Good - 2011 - Journal of Business Ethics 98 (4):609-625.

    Understanding Salespeople's Intention to Behave Unethically: The Effects of Perceived Competitive Intensity, Cognitive Moral Development and Moral Judgment. [REVIEW]Charles H. Schwepker - 1999 - Journal of Business Ethics 21 (4):303 - 316.
    Three factors considered to potentially influence salespeople's intentions to behave unethically are empirically examined.

Results suggest that all three factors influence salespeople's intention to behave unethically. Implications and directions for future research are provided.

    Little is known about how ethical organizational contexts influence employees’ perceived stress levels and well-being.

Perceived organizational ethics is positively related to employee well-being, with post hoc mediation (...)
