Abstract

Previous studies showed that bullying factors, workloads, office politics and favoritism affect the workplace stress in the organization. An organization must address this problem with a systematic employee valuation and strategic leadership. The system also involves job description whereby it requires a more specific, clear and precise specification in order to tackle with the amount of workloads that exceed the job description. Thus this study aims to examine the relationship between bullying and workplace stress moderate by job scope. This study was conducted on employees from the top 5 cooperative registered under Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur. The relationship between bullying (threat, contempt and sabotage) and workplace stress was examined using Pearson correlation analysis method to determine the existence of a relationship between the variables. The results showed that threat is significantly related to workplace stress (r = -.274, p < 0.01), contempt is significantly related to workplace stress (r = .317, p < 0.01) and sabotage is significantly related to workplace stress (r = -.350, p < 0.01). The hierarchical regression analysis was used to determine the mediator effect on the relationship between bullying and workplace stress. The finding showed that there was a moderation effect of job scope on the relationship between workplace bullying and workplace stress.
