Maria Rasheed, Zanaira Iqbal, Dr. Muhammad Asim Faheem, Usman Islam, Dr. Sadia Ather.

The prevalence of organizational deviance is serious threat for the organization and workplace mistreatment faced by employee may steer that threat. The present study investigates the relationship between employees perceived workplace incivility and their reciprocity in the form of deviant behaviors towards organization. Additionally, authors examine the moderating effect of personal spirituality. They hypothesized that the relationship between workplace incivility and organizational deviance would be weaker when individual holds high personal spiritual ethical believes. Data collected cross-sectionally from nurses working in public health sector organizations such as hospitals. Complete confidentiality was ensured to the participants of survey. Findings of this study shows that the deviant acts of nurses escalated due to the uncivil interactions encountered by them while the personal spirituality weakens the effects of workplace incivility and plays as intervening role to reduces the organizational deviance. The implication of the results for understanding the consequences of uncivil interaction in the workplace are examined.

Key words: Workplace incivility, organizational deviance, personal spirituality, healthcare sector, Social Exchange Theory
