Abstract

This study examines the relatively new phenomenon of organizational cronyism as a determinant of deviant workplace behavior in public sector organizations in Pakistan. It also examines the mediating role of psychological contract breach. Data were collected from 180 employees working in various public sector organizations in Pakistan. The results indicate that organizational cronyism is positively related with psychological contract breach, which in turn results in deviant workplace behavior in public sector organizations.
