Counterproductive work behaviors (CWBs) were defined by Spector and Fox (2005) as voluntary acts intended to harm or affect organizations or employees in organizations. Counterproductive behaviors share the common feature of violating such authentic interests of an organization by doing potential harms to its members or to the organization as a whole (Sackett & Devore, 2001). CWB have been described in a number of ways, including organizational aggression (Baron & Neuman, 1996; Baron & Neuman, 1997; Spector, 1975), incivility (Sakurai & Jex, 2012), antisocial behavior (Giacalone & Greenberg, 1997); deviance (Hollinger, 1986; Robinson & Bennett, 1995), and retaliation (Skarlicki & Folger, 1997) but the common fundamental theme is that these behaviors harm the organization by directly affecting its functioning or property, or by impacting on employees in a way that reduces their performance.
Also, past researches suggest that such oversight can have significant outcomes, such as employee discontentment, job accidents, over use of sick leave, conflict of work teams, productivity deterioration and turnover intentions (Lim, Cortina & Magley, 2008).

(2006) identified an approach on how to assess counterproductive work behavior and discovered the five dimensions of CWB and claimed that it can be classified under Buss’s (1961) distinction between primarily active and passive behaviors. Under active forms of CWB includes some type of behavior like abuse, theft, sabotage, to name a few. Abuse was defined against others consist of both physical and verbal actions. While passive behavior includes the employees’ inaction in the situation such as production deviance, defined as intentional failure when completing tasks correctly, withdrawal behaviors, etc. Despite having dimensions of counterproductive work behaviors, in the present study it is important to incorporate all the dimensions in just one
Employees at the plant also perceive a breakdown in their psychological contract with the organization.
Techs need to focus on finishing one job in order to start the next. If a tech does not plan time productively and work efficiently, the tech will not complete all work calls. This could stimulate a loss in jobs and respectability from
Hard Workers Aren’t Getting Paid Many people say if you help a business make a profit you should receive a portion of that profit. However, this is not the case with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and its athletes. The NCAA needs to pay athletes because the athletes bring in billions of dollars for them each year. They also spend countless hours working on their sport that could be used for other productive things.

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall Therapists often face many ethical dilemmas in their therapeutic relationships with their clients. Countertransference is one ethical dilemma that is seen quite often in therapy and often goes unnoticed until the therapist becomes aware of this feeling. Countertransference is caused when the therapist begins to involve their own projections and feelings toward their client, or their clients ' situation that may potentially distort the way they perceive and react to their client in therapy (Corey, Corey, & Callanan, 2015, p.49). This sort of conflict often happens when the therapist begins to lose objectivity towards the client, causing their emotional reactions to become more intensified during therapy. These
In this milestone we will be looking at a few key items of employee and labor relations. Some items that this paper will cover are things such as employee discipline, performance management and employee and labor relations. First, we will start by looking at employee discipline. Employee Discipline: Analyze punitive and nonpunitive disciplinary approaches, and explain their impacts on employee relations. When talking about employee discipline there are two schools of thought.
Instead, they engage in “weapons of the weak”: refusal to perform as expected, unenthusiastic and uncooperative behavior, and petty theft. Bourgois further elaborates “this kind of disgruntlement, however, is particularly unacceptable in the new office service sector, where “attitude” — enthusiasm, initiative, and flexibility — often determines who is fired and who is promoted” (Bourgois 155). One can only imagine that with such behavior, there is less than a slight possibility for drug dealers to remain lawfully employed. However, these “weapons of the weak” are used because low-level service sector employees do not possess the appropriate institutional strategies to ease their
This competency is all about being able to make critical decisions in the case of ethical dilemmas and acting professionally in the work place. Although ethical dilemmas rarely have clear-cut solutions, this competency tells social workers to turn to the NASW code of ethics and supervision for guidance. That is exactly what I did for my "Ethic Paper" which you can find below. For this assignment, I was asked to interview a licensed MSW about an ethical dilemma they faced in their career, how they handled it, and how they came to their decisions. This assignment allowed me to better understand how an ethical dilemma is handled in the real world (as opposed to the many hypothetical situations we discuss in class) and also challenged my interviewing
‘How work is organized’ and the ‘leadership style’ of the organization can produce role conflict and poor work control (Einarsen, Raknes and Matthiesen, 1994; as cited in Jennifer, 2000). Thus, it is up to the culture of the organization to set a precedent for unambiguous work flow, higher production, and zero tolerance for workplace bullying. Other researchers have found that the “work environment and organizational climate (Einarsen et al., 1994; Vartia, 1996); job content and social work environment (Zapf, Knorz and Kulla, 1996); work organization and poor conflict management (Einarsen and Skogstad, 1996; Leymann, 1996); inappropriate managerial behavior (Crawford,

As well as, sometimes bullying can involve negative physical contact.

Some scholars described bullying as the assertion of power through aggression (Workplace Bullying Institute, 2015).
2.0 LITERATURE REVIEW The review of literature of this study broadly focused on whistleblowing. There have been several attempts to define whistleblowing, but certainly there is no generally accepted definition. According to Near and Miceli (1985), which are often referred by researchers, whistleblowing is a process whereby a current or former member of an organization discloses practices or activities believe to be illegal, immoral or illegitimate, to those who may be able to effect change. The practices or activities can be refer to personal misbehavior such as stealing, waste, mismanagement, safety problems, sexual harassment, unfair discrimination and legal violations (Dasgupta & Kesharwani, 2010).
