Workplace deviance behavior at work also has become the focus of an increasing number of research studies (Ones, Viswesvaran & Schmidt, 1993; Robinson & Bennett, 1995; Sackett & DeVore, 2001).

This lack of trust results in a disconnect between working class levels (that is, a class struggle) due to the creation of tension as a result of the time studies being conducted. This is why secret time studies were introduced. The difference between a normal time study and a secret time study is that in a secret time study, workers do not know they are being monitored.
