Sharizan Sharkawi, Abdul Rahman Abdul Rahim, Noor AzuraDahalan

The objective of this study is to identify the relationship between employees‟ psychological contract violation (PCV) and person organization fit (PO Fit) with CWB in the context of manufacturing industry. Data was collected from 192 employees of supervisor level and below. Several analyses were performed including factor analysis, correlations and regression analysis. Results revealed two dimensions of CWB, namely interpersonal CWB (CWB-I) and organizational CWB (CWB-O). Only PCV (Autonomy & Control) has positive relationship, and there is no significant relationship between PCV (Growth & Development), PCV (Organizational Support) with dimensions of CWB. This shows that when the employer violated the psychological contract with regards to „autonomy and control‟, employees would reciprocate by displaying CWB. Meanwhile, the PO Fit has negative relationship with CWB which concludes that when employees are fit with their organization, their tendency to act counterproductively will be low.
