In a survey with 73.56% response rate of 662 employees in 21 work units among 9 industries, across multiple organizations, by using questionnaire with convenience sampling and stratified sampling to get sample data, the relationship among ethical leadership, ethical climate and moral efficacy were examined. Using SPSS 21.0 to conduct a data analysis, we found support for our hypothesized models that (1) ethical leadership will have positive impact on moral efficacy (2) ethical leadership will be positively related to ethical climate (3) ethical climate will mediate the relationship between ethical leadership and moral efficacy. In the later, theoretical and practical implications of these findings and limitation, as well as suggestions for future avenues for researches and practice will be discussed.
