Abstract
Along with the developing of the research on Organizational Behavior, more and more scholars pay attention to the unethical pro-organizational behavior (UPB). Drawing on the S-O-M Model, we explored the relationship between the authoritarian leadership and employees' UPB, and the mediation effect of work stressor and moral disengagement on it. Using questionnaire survey, we collected data at two time-points and obtained 98 usable observations for hypothesis testing. The results of regression analyses showed that the authoritarian leadership can predict employees' UPB through the work stressor and moral disengagement. We discussed the implications, limitations, and future research directions.
