Abstract:

The purpose of this article is to study about workplace deviance (theft and intent to quit) as an important outcome of perception of organizational politics and also to investigate whether job stress and low job satisfaction mediate this relationship. Using a sample of 145 employees belonging to different organizations of Peshawar, Abbottbad and Islamabad, this study tests the direct relations and mediators effect using standard regression and hierarchical regression analyses. The results suggest that perception of organizational politics positively affects theft, whereas, no direct link was found between intent to quit and perception of organizational politics. The results also indicate that job stress and low job satisfaction fully mediate the relationship between perception of organizational politics and workplace deviance behavior i.e. theft. In the context of developing countries this study is worth considerable in literature of organizational behavior and psychology. Practical implications and future avenues are also discussed in the end.
