The present study proposed and tested a model of organizational deviance, which incorporated characteristics of both the work environment and the individual. Specifically, job design and personality were examined as determinants of organizational deviance. The model incorporated both direct and joint effects of the study variables. Data from 662 individuals were analyzed using moderated regression. Results showed personality traits of conscientiousness and neuroticism and job characteristic of identity predicted organizational deviance. Conscientiousness moderated the impact of variety and neuroticism moderated the impact of identity on organizational deviance. The findings have implications for job design, selection and recruitment of organizational members.
