This pilot study investigated the Influence of organizational formal control on workplace deviance among 81 teaching staff from various higher education institutions in Nigeria, including universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.A web-based survey was used to collect data.The data collected was analysed using Partial Least Squares (PLS) path modeling. As predicted, the path coefficient results showed that perceived behaviour control was negatively related to interpersonal deviance.The results also demonstrated a significant negative relationship between perceived behaviour control and organisational deviance.On the contrary, the finding of this study revealed that perceptions of outcomes controls were not found to influence individuals to behave in a positive way at work. Specifically, the results of the structural model analysis did show that those employees who were subjected to outcomes controls were less likely to engage both interpersonal deviance and organizational deviance.The implications of the study for theory and research on workplace deviance are discussed.
