Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the causal relationship between an employee's ethical behaviour and their job performance and examining the mediating role of job involvement in the relationship between independent and dependent variables. This exploratory study investigated 647 respondents from different IT companies in India, using stratified random methodology. The conceptual model of various sub-constructs of ethical behaviour, job involvement, and job performance was tested using structural equation modelling. Data and hypothesis were tested using SPSS 22.0, AMOS 24.0, ADENCO and Process (Prof A. Hayes). The findings of the study support the mediating role of job involvement and depict that there is a moderating effect of respondents' experience and their education on the relationship of an employee's ethical behaviour and job performance. This research provides insights into understanding the impact of ethical behaviour on job involvement and job performance.
