dc.description.abstractEthical decision-making is common and frequent in the workplace, thus it is of value to organizations and society for psychology to further explicate how a person makes ethical decisions. The study argued that the a person’s behavioral intention to act when faced with moral dilemma is influenced by individual characteristics, both directly and indirectly through the desire for moral approval from one’s self and others. An empirical examination was conducted to establish the nomological network of desired moral approbation (DMA) and its role in ethical decision-making behavior. A model was derived from the theory of planned behavior, the person-situation interactionist model, the theory of cognitive moral development, moral approbation theory, and locus of control. Results of a path analysis showed only DMA-O significantly predicted behavioral intention. Suggestions for improvements in ethical-decision making theory, methodology, and measurement are offered
