    An Investigation of the Effects of Corporate Ethical Values on Employee Commitment and Performance: Examining the Moderating Role of Perceived Fairness.Dheeraj Sharma, Shaheen Borna & James M. Stearns - 2009 - Journal of Business Ethics 89 (2):251-260.
    Corporate ethical values (CEVs) can be viewed outside the realm of organizational training, standard operating procedures, reward and punishment systems, formal statements, and as more representative of the real nature of the organization (Organ, 1988). Past researchers have empirically demonstrated the direct influence of CEVs on job performance. This study argues that employees' perception of organizational fairness will create perceptual distortion of CEVs. The results of the study indicate that perceived fairness moderates the influence of CEVs on two seminal outcomes, (...)

  2. "Sex" and "Gender": Two Confused and Confusing Concepts in the "Women in Corporate Management" Literature. [REVIEW]Shaheen Borna & Gwendolen White - 2003 - Journal of Business Ethics 47 (2):89 - 99.
    In this article we attempt to reduce the confusion surrounding the concepts of "sex" and "gender" in the literature of "Women in Corporate Management." We contend that the incorrect usage of these concepts not only creates confusion in the literature, but also casts a shadow over the research findings in this area. We offer specific recommendations for authors as means to reduce the confusion in future research.

    Genetic Information: Consumers' Right to Privacy Versus Insurance Companies' Right to Know a Public Opinion Survey. [REVIEW]Shaheen Borna & Stephen Avila - 1999 - Journal of Business Ethics 19 (4):355 - 362.
    In this paper we present arguments for and against the disclosure of genetic information to the insurance companies. One of the main issues which emerges from these arguments is the question of who should be responsible for the health insurance costs of the individuals who are most likely to be affected by the disclosure of genetic information. The results of a resident opinion survey related to the above question are presented and public policy alternatives related to the survey findings are (...)

    Morality and Marketing Human Organs.Shaheen Borna - 1987 - Journal of Business Ethics 6 (1):37 - 44.
    Recent break-throughs in surgery and the discovery of an effective immunosupressive drug called cyclosporin, have brought a Renaissance in organ transplants. These medical advances have also heightened concern over the already critical shortage of body organs. Several alternatives have been suggested which may help alleviate the organ shortage. One such alternative is to allow commerce in human organs. This article discusses the morality of commercialization of human organs within the framework of several ethical theories.

    The Ethics of Lottery Advertising: Issues and Evidence. [REVIEW]James M. Stearns & Shaheen Borna - 1995 - Journal of Business Ethics 14 (1):43 - 51.
    After a discussion of the evolution and criticisms of state run lotteries, this article examines the ethics of lottery advertising. A discussion of the appeals used by lottery advertisers is followed by evidence concerning the impact of expected value information on lottery purchase intentions. Findings point toward less emphasis on the lottery as a solution to financial and job problems and more emphasis on information about the actual value of a lottery bet. Using accepted standards from the marketing literature, lottery (...)

    The Ethics and Efficacy of Selling National Citizenship.Shaheen Borna & James M. Stearns - 2002 - Journal of Business Ethics 37 (2):193 - 207.
    The inevitable global marketplace creates a need for freer movement of labor. The question is not whether this movement will occur but how it will be implemented. This paper discusses the idea of selling citizenship rights as an alternative approach for allocating immigration and permanent residency. First presented is the rationale for using the market approach to selling citizenship. Next the political, country image, economic, and ethical implementation issues of the proposal are discussed. And last, selling citizenship is discussed in (...)

    The Philosopher is Not Always Right: A Comment on "the Customer is Not Always Right".Shaheen Borna & James M. Stearns - 1998 - Journal of Business Ethics 17 (1):39-44.
    This paper is a response to "The Customer Is Not Always Right" published in the November, 1994 issue of this Journal (Sorell, 1994). The authors argue that "The Customer Is Not Always Right" ignores significant contributions from the literature of business and economics. This comment refutes Sorell's arguments on a case by case basis showing why in each situation the customer is, in reality, right or the situation is not a question of the customer being right or wrong. Existing knowledge (...)

    Illegal Products and the Question of Consumer Redress.Shaheen Borna - 1989 - Journal of Business Ethics 8 (6):499 - 505.
    Despite the enormous size of the illicit market in the United States, there is a paucity of research concerning the rights of consumers of illegal products. In this article it is argued that the illicit nature of a transaction should not deny consumers the right to safety and redress. Recognition of these rights is not only in line with the public policy goal, i.e., protecting public interests, but it can also serve as a deterrent factor for the sales of illegal (...)
