This study investigated the relationships among egoistic ethical work climate, benevolent ethical work climate, principled ethical work climate, and job satisfaction as perceived by IS faculty at public institutions of higher education in the Southeastern United States. They study relied on constructs from previous studies to measure ethical work climate and job satisfaction. Statistically significant findings were observed between egoistic ethical work climate, benevolent ethical work climate, principled ethical work climate, and job satisfaction. The development of benevolent or principled ethical work climates has a positive relationship with faculty job satisfaction. In contrast, there is a strong inverse correlation between egoistic ethical work climates and faculty’s perception of job satisfaction.
