Based on the findings of ethical research paradigms, this study aims to explore ethical issues pertaining to service offerings and verify the effects that individual and organizational factors can have on ethical crises. The participants are a sample derived from the actual rule-violation records of financial service salespeople from a listed life insurance company. In order to gather longitudinal data for this exploratory study on unethical behavior, this study gained 1 year of the rule violation record. Data were entered into SPSS to approach description of ethical problems, and an analysis of variance method is applied to diagnose hypotheses. The results indicate that individual age and job experience and organizational region (i.e. in the Chinese countryside) will have significant effects on unethical behavior. In addition, a consideration of the interaction between organizational scale and age shows that scale has the potential to incite unethical behavior among salespeople. Furthermore, according to the findings, this study depicts a taxonomic model. The contribution of this study is to propose essential indicators to certify an organizational warning system.
