This intriguing volume provides an understanding of the various forms of antisocial behavior in the workplace and how they can be identified and managed - if not prevented altogether. Antisocial Behavior in Organizations includes an analysis of the role of frustration in antisocial behavior and discusses issues such as employee revenge, aggression, lying, theft, and sabotage. Whistle-blowing, litigation, and filing claims are also explored as types of behavior that may be considered antisocial even though their stated goal is perhaps prosocial. The book concludes by making connections between antisocial behavior and organizational climate - addressing the need for modification in the workplace to reduce antisocial behavior. Academics, students, and practitioners in the fields of management, industrial/organizational psychology, sociology, social psychology, legal studies and criminal justice will appreciate this collection of original essays written by respected experts.
