ABSTRACT

This study examines the effect of ethical accounting practices on organizational productivity in Osun state, Nigeria. To achieve this objective, data was collected from primary and secondary sources. The secondary sources were from textbooks, journals, magazine, public and academic libraries and unpublished thesis. The primary source adopts descriptive research design questionnaire while data were collected from 176 respondents cutting across organisations in Osun State. Our hypotheses were tested using Chi-square (X2) and all were supported by extant literatures. Results show that effective performance of service industry was dependent on code of ethics [X2cal = 18.082 > t0.05 = 7.815] and that the compliance level of established code of ethics for service industry was high [X2cal = 13.801 > t0.05 = 7.815]. Our findings therefore suggested that there should be specific procedures to always identify and deal with the issues of ethical misconduct; and it is important for organizations to increase punitive measures to violators of ethical codes.
