Abstract

In a series of three studies, we examine whether the type of punishment utilized by supervisors, contingent versus non-contingent, influences employees' unethical behavior, and the mechanisms through which this occurs. As predicted, uncertainty and justice served as mediators, with stronger effects found for non-contingent punishments than for contingent punishments.
