Formatted Abstract/Summary
During turbulent economic times, negative behaviors that emerge from perceptions of job insecurity can be a major issue. Although research has linked perceptions of job insecurity to stress, employees that feel insecure in their jobs may get caught in a pattern of negative behaviors. The aim of this research was to develop and test a model of the behavioral consequences of job insecurity and to examine the potential ameliorating effects of emotional intelligence.

Based on our findings we note that emotional intelligence, and in particular, awareness and management of emotions, improved decision-making outcomes. Specifically, the findings from this research confirm that the negative effects of job insecurity on employee decision-making behaviors are ameliorated by respondents’ awareness and management of their own emotions. We conclude with a discussion of the theoretical and practical implications of our findings, and provide suggestions for future research.
