题目：Why does abusive supervision occur? Exploring the roles of moral development level, psychological capital, and organizational values
Previous research has revealed that abusive supervision has various harmful consequences to individuals and organizations. However, the antecedents and mechanisms that explain why abusive supervision occurs are not well understood, especially from the perspective of morality. In this study, we proposed and tested a multi-level moderated mediation model to explore the relationship between the level of moral development and abusive supervision, and the joint effect of psychological capital and corporate ethical values. Using a sample of 109 supervisors and their 436 subordinates from 39 organizations in China, we found that supervisors with higher levels of moral development are less likely to be abusive to their subordinates. Supervisors’ psychological capital partially mediates the relationship between their moral development and their abusive behaviors. In addition, corporate ethical values in the workplace moderate the direct effects of supervisors’ psychological capital and the indirect effects of their moral development on the extent to which they behave abusively to their subordinates.
