This study aims to reveal the ethical practices in the workplace and the support of the organization in encouraging ethical behavior. A survey was conducted of 786 employees from 131 strategic business units of one of the largest Indonesian family-owned enterprises. The results of the study show that the majority of the respondents believe honesty is often practiced, while more than half of the respondents are aware of ethical misconduct practiced by their employer or colleagues. The majority of the respondents expressed their concerns to top management or other employees in the organization, but less than half were satisfied with the results. This study contributes to the theory and practice by providing evidence of practices of ethical behavior in an emerging country.
