Abstract: We explore the ethical facets of within-company upward influence behavior. Our focus is Vietnam, where only minimal research has been conducted, with comparison data from China, France, and the US--countries that have had both past and present relationships with Vietnam. Our hypotheses are developed within the contexts of the historical, business ideology, and socio-cultural relationships that Vietnam has shared with these countries. The findings indicate that Vietnam is a country that is largely unique unto itself regarding the perspective on upward influence ethics that is held by its professional workforce.
