A total of 250 participants from private owned organizations in Lagos state where use in the study, and 250 questionnaires were collected after the completion.  Data were collected using Ethical Leadership Scale (Brown Trevino, & Harrison, 2005), LMX-multidimensional scale (Liden & Maslyn, 1998), Job Involvement Questionnaire (JIQ) (Kanungo, 1982) and Organizational Commitment Scale (Allen and Meyer, 1990). The collected data were analyzed by Pearson Product Moment Correlation and Regression Analysis. The result of this research shows that there is no relationship between ethical leadership behavior and job involvement. There was also a significant positive relationship between ethical leadership behavior and organizational commitment.

Furthermore, the study revealed that there is a significant positive relationship between leader-member exchange and job involvement. That is, leader-member relationship increases the job involvement. Finally, there is a significant positive relationship between leader-member exchange and organizational commitment.
