The results showed that unethical conduct and job satisfaction were negatively related (r = -.265, sig = .000), where, ethical conduct and job satisfaction were positively related (r = .385, sig = .000). As implications, this study provides evidence of the negative relationship between the level of job satisfaction and unethical behaviors, where on the other hand, it provides evidence of the positive relationship between the level of job satisfaction and ethical behaviors.
