Abstract

The study investigated the relationship between the 4 variables of workplace deviant behavior in manufacturing industry. The objectives of the study were 1) to investigate the relationship between ethical climate and workplace deviant behavior ii) to investigate the relationship between job satisfaction and workplace deviant behavior iii) To investigate the relationship between job attributes and workplace deviant behavior iii) to investigate the relationship between personal attributes and workplace deviant behavior iv) to investigate the relationship between personal attitudes and workplace deviant behavior v) to examine what is the most influence factor (i.e ethical climate, job satisfaction, job satisfaction and personal factors) on workplace deviant behavior. Based on the literature reviews a model of relationship was proposed and developed to examine the relationships between the four variables and workplace deviant behavior. To test the relationship of the variables in the model, data from 107 employees from manufacturing industry, were used. To test the relationship hypotheses of the study, correlation, and multiple regression analysis were performed. The correlation analysis suggested a significant and negative relationship among 3 of the 4 variables. The correlation results suggests that job satisfaction, ethical climate and self esteem is negatively and significantly associated with workplace deviant behavior. According to the multiple regression analysis among the three variables, job satisfaction is the most influential independent variable on workplace deviant behavior. Based on the finding further research should be carried out to fbrther investigate how organizations can minimize the effect of deviant behavior The limitation of the study and the future research opportunities in this area are also discussed.
