In this study we developed a typology of deviant workplace behaviors using multi-dimensional scaling techniques. Results suggest that deviant workplace behaviors vary along two dimensions: minor vs serious, and interpersonal vs organizational. On the basis of these two dimensions employee deviance appears to fall into four distinct categories: production deviance, property deviance, political deviance and personal aggression. Theoretical and empirical implications are discussed.
