Title

Role of abusive supervision on voice and safety behavior: evidence from microfinance banks in Pakistan

Abstract/Description

Drawing upon the reactance theory, the key aim of this paper is to examine the influence of abusive supervision on employee voice and safety behaviors. Besides assessing the direct effect, we also included the attribution style of employees as a mediating mechanism between these variables. We used a supervisor-subordinate nested design with multi-time data collection approach using convenience sampling. A total of 307 supervisor-subordinate matched responses were relied upon. By adopting PLS-SEM technique and Smart PLS software, our findings supported all the hypothesized relationships. In the light of reactance theory, our findings extend our knowledge on the effect of abusive supervision on employee voice and safety concerns and offer useful theoretical and managerial implications.
