Emphasis on the organizational commitment of employees is a soft management technique to enhance performance and efficiency. This study aimed to determine the relationship between organizational commitment in the employees of Tehran University of Medical Sciences (TUMS) and their tendency to display non-ethical behavior.

This study was a descriptive analytical and cross-sectional research conducted on the headquarters employees of Tehran University of Medical Sciences during 2013 and 2014. A sample size of 150 employees was determined using the Cochran formula. Research tools consisted of a researcher-made questionnaire measuring non-ethical behavior, and Allen & Meyer’s Organizational Commitment Scale. The validity and reliability of both questionnaires were confirmed. The response rate was 85%. Data were collected using the SPSS software, and Pearson’s statistical methods were applied.

The average organizational commitment of the employees in this study was 62.32, which is considered as moderate. It should be added that the majority of the employees did not demonstrate a tendency for non-ethical behavior.

Although the average organizational commitment was not high in TUMS employees, it was not correlated to their non-ethical behavior tendency. It seems that the organizational commitment of TUMS employees is influenced by other factors such as supervisor and organizational ethics, which can be the subject of future studies.
