Employees in an organization are  human beings and also useful resources to an organization and should be treated with love and respect by their employers, In most cases employers see their employees as machines that can be used and replaced at any time , Employees dignity should be respected and also be given a sense of belonging in a work place they should be allowed to share their  personal ideas which might be useful to there employers in running the actives of the organization .

Employees should be seen as more than strangers, employees they should see their self as a member of the organization which will make them more committed their work and also motivate them to achieve higher productivity , Employers should see their employees as full members of the company and not just a third party when employees are been treated right there is said to be a room for a good working condition in an organization, Employers treating their employees ethical also improves the brand image of the company .

Effects of Unethical behaviors by employers to their employees.

Low level of productivity – when employers don’t treat their employees ethical, they is said to be low level of performance on the part of the employees, most time they want to absent from work because of the fear of meeting the employer the next day at work.
