Corporate transgression is a well-known phenomenon in today's business world. Some corporations are involved in violations of law and moral rules that produce organizational practices and products that take a toll on the public.

Social cognitive theory of moral agency provides a conceptual framework for analyzing how otherwise pro-social managers adopt socially injurious corporate practices. This is achieved through selective disengagement of moral self-sanctions from transgressive conduct.

Moral disengagement practices can be recognized in cases of corporate transgressions. Business ethics is a major vehicle to counteract organizational use of moral disengagement strategies.
