Abstract

Using detailed micro data that measures the deviant behaviors of workers in the business outfit of a Nigerian university, the extent to which these behaviors were influenced by some specific instruments that informs the policy stance of the management of the business outfit, was examined in this paper. The logistic regression technique was applied in testing the empirical model that was informed by the Trevino (1986) ‘interactionist’ model. The results present some policy relevant outcomes and are robust when considering alternative approaches in the estimation approaches.
