Abstract

Researchers have stressed the importance of assessing counterproductive work behaviors (CWB) which represent one of the most serious problems facing today's organizations. This study investigated the psychometric properties of CWB checklist in an Italian sample of 856 workers (52.5% women), ranging in age from 17 to 66 years. Through a cross-validation approach results confirmed the twofactor structure of this scale. The two main facets of CWB, CWB toward organization and CWB toward people, resulted correlated but separable. In fact, an alternative model positing a single primary factor underlying the two facets was not supported vis a vis the empirical data. Moreover, the two CWB facets showed up with a different pattern of correlations among different work stressors. While these two facets seems to have a common root, they are by the way undoubtedly diverse, and this difference is of important relevance for practical and theoretical purposes.
