Abstract

Workplace deviant behavior, under its many labels and conceptualizations has become a major topic of research in the management and industrial organizational psychology literature. This study aims to investigate the relationship between workplace deviant behavior and other work related factors; work-related stress and job satisfaction. Data were collected from 162 subjects who were working as civil servants in Malaysia using a set of questionnaires that measure the variables studied. The results showed that both job stress and job satisfaction predict workplace deviant behaviour. Results also showed a negative relationship between job satisfaction and workplace deviant behavior and a positive relationship between stress and workplace deviant behavior. This study could not find significant relationship between gender and marital status with workplace deviant behavior. Implications for future research are discussed.
