Abstract

Workplace deviance is an important problem in organization management. Previous studies focused too much on the influence of various factors in the workplace and ignored the interference of family factors. We integrate emotional social function theory and emotional labor theory, and examine the effect of (in) congruence between work and family status on workplace deviance. Using longitudinal data and polynomial regression, we find that: (1) Emotional exhaustion is higher when work and family status are congruent; (2) In the case of work-family congruence, emotional exhaustion is higher when work and family status are aligned at a low level than when they are at a high level; (3) Differences (and similarities) between work and family status can have consequential effects on emotional exhaustion and, ultimately, workplace deviance; (4) Organizational tenure positively regulates the above mediation model. These findings broaden work-family and deviance research by highlighting the role of congruence between work and family status and how it helps reduce workplace deviance.
