The questionnaire return rate was 60 percent. The probability of a significant model parameters were used to test the hypothesis. Using smartPLS and explaining the hypotheses in a standard estimate, the goodness of fit of proposed model was investigated. At significant level of five percent, the results showed that: There is a significant relationship among working relationships with audit supervisor and dysfunctional behavior of auditors. However, ethical climate at the top levels of the organization moderates the relationship between working relationships with audit supervisor and dysfunctional behavior of auditors.
