Article excerpt:

Historically, integrity assessments have been shown to be valid predictors of both CWBs and job performance (e.g., Berry, Sackett, & Wiemann, 2007; Ones, Viswesvaran, & Schmidt, 1993, 2012; Sackett & Wanek, 1996; Wanek, 1999). More recently, researchers have begun looking at the cross-cultural validity of integrity measures (e.g., Fine, 2010, 2013; Fortmann, Leslie, & Cunningham, 2002; Lievens et al., 2015; Ones, Wiernik, Viswesvaran, & Schmidt, 2014).
