Abstract

The present study examined the impact of organizational factors on deviant workplace
behavior and the moderating role of transformational leadership in managing the
impact of organizational factors on deviant workplace behavior (DWB) and, drawing
on the theoretical supports of social exchange theory, social learning theory and the
psychological contract theory. A total of 380 individuals from 20 public organizations
situated in Lahore, the Punjabi provincial capital of Pakistan, participated in the present
study. The results from Structural Equation Modeling are presented using SPSS and
AMOS. The results revealed significant relationship and supported the hypothesized
direct impact of organizational factors on deviant workplace behavior in Pakistani
public organizations. However, moderating effect of transformational leadership
among organizational factors and deviant workplace is not supported as hypothesed.
