An understanding of the various forms of antisocial behaviour in the workplace, and how these can be identified, managed and prevented, is provided in this volume. Topics discussed include: the role of frustration in antisocial behaviour, revenge, aggression, lying, theft and sabotage. Whistle-blowing and litigation, two forms of behaviour that may be considered antisocial, although their stated goal may be prosocial, are also covered. The book concludes with a chapter that makes connections between antisocial behaviour and the organizational climate.
