Sleep and Unethical Behavior

Sleep and Unethical Behavior

(p.125) Chapter 7 Sleep and Unethical Behavior
Work and Sleep

The chapter Sleep and Unethical Behavior integrates theoretical models of ethical decision-making with the self-regulatory framework to explain how sleep can impact ethical behavior in organizations. The chapter reviews literature using a dual-process model as a guiding framework wherein sleep problems affect unethical behavior through two self-regulation mechanisms. Misregulation refers to cognitive or affective biases in moral awareness and moral judgments that may arise due to sleep problems. Underregulation refers to self-control depletion occurring due to poor sleep. Both of these processes are discussed in relation to how they influence the motivation to engage in ethical behavior at work. Other potential factors that may change the effects of misregulation and underregulation on unethical behavior are discussed (e.g., moral intensity and identity, social influences, and time of day), including suggestions for future research.

Keywords:   sleep, ethical behavior, self-control, moral awareness, moral judgments, cognitive and affective biases, self-regulation, ethical decision-making
