Abstract

We offer a theoretical framework predicting the susceptibility of newcomers' to corrupt choices and their subsequent involvement in ongoing organizational corruption. Previous research on corruption has identified contributing organizational factors such as institutionalization, rationalization, and socialization as well as personal factors such as locus of control and level of moral development. We take a personsituation interaction approach in which we examine the roles of newcomers' values and emotions in their acceptance or refusal in joining ongoing corruption when organizational socialization lures them into accepting unethical choices. Our framework also suggests that regulation of emotions might be one of the important factors guiding newcomers to make morally valued choices even when the situations force them otherwise.
