Abstract

Based on fairness heuristic theory, this study examines how and when leader anger expression towards unethical behavior influences team OCB. Team-level data are collected at three time points from 453 employees in 93 work teams. Results show that distributive justice climate mediates the positive relationship between leader anger expression towards unethical behavior and team OCB. Moreover, leader moral decoupling weakens the positive impact of leader anger expression towards unethical behavior on team OCB via distributive justice climate. The findings suggest the importance of adopting a fairness perspective to understand the collective level consequences of leader anger expression.
