Abstract/Summary The main aim of the paper is to uncover the underlying justice motives that drive deviant behaviours in organisations. This aim is fulfilled by investigating the existing gap between organisational justice and organisational deviance, which are the psychological consequences that follow from an unjust experience. In this paper, I posit that perceptions of fairness will evoke psychological manifestations such as support, control or belongingness. These motives will then drive employees to commit deviant acts in the organisation. Results of the current study indicated that procedural justice and the associated consequence of perceived organisation support were the best predictors of employee reports of workplace deviance.
