Globalization and increased industrial age promotes the complication of business ethics in organizations. Moreover, the worldwide competition and global integration raised many ethical issues with an immense need to work on ethical climate. Ethical climate is most emerging aspects of organization at both national and international level. The current study examines the impact of ethical climate (egoistic, benevolent and principled) on counterproductive behavior and also investigates the level of support of senior management to reduce the counterproductive behavior of employees in the manufacturing textile industry. The manufacturing sector of any country holds vital role and Pakistan focus largely on its textile exports. So the target audience was the employees of manufacturing sector of textile industry and data was collected from 210 employees. Results of regression analysis demonstrate a significant negative association between the ethical climate and counterproductive behavior. Moreover, Top management support moderates this relationship by minimizing the counterproductive behavior. This study will help out decision making authorities to reduce counterproductive behavior. As a result employees will be loyal towards the organization and ultimately organization’s ethical climate will be improved.
