Unethical pro-organizational behavior (UPB) involves actions of employees or employers in any business or organization or company that benefits such organization in a seemingly positive way, but lacks moral, ethical and/or societal standards and codes of conduct. The available research on this concept dives into how much of an impact this behavior makes, as well as how wide-spread it is throughout the corporate world. By systematically clarifying the conception and measurement of UPB, comparison with relevant behaviors, this research establishes a multi-level integrated model. It also identifies the trends of future study in this field and discusses their implications for UPB’s conceptualization, dimension and measurement, research levels and localization research.

Key words: unethical pro-organizational behavior, multi-level integrated model, organizational identification
