Abstract

This study examined the impact of the differences in the way employees and their supervisors see ethical dilemmas. An ethical attitudes scale of vignettes was developed to cover six categories of ethical dilemmas business, discrimination, environment, marketing, personal finances and sexuality. The responses of 152 male and female employees demonstrated that employees have a more strict ethical attitude towards non-organisational rather than organisational ethical dilemmas. To determine the way in which employees see themselves as ethically similar to their supervisors, the respondents responses were compared with the respondents perceptions of their supervisors responses to the same ethical dilemmas.
