Influence of Job Dissatisfaction and Low Organizational Support on Fraudulent Intent among Bank Workers
Keywords:Job dissatisfaction, Organizational support, Fraudulent intent, Bank Workers, Low organizational support
This study investigated the influence of job dissatisfaction and low organizational support on fraudulent intent among bank workers. The ex-post facto design was used for this study and three standardized questionnaires namely Organizational Support Scale, Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire and Fraudulent Intent Scale were used to collect data. 170 bank workers randomly selected from four banks namely Guaranty Trust Bank, Keystone Bank, First City Monument Bank and Access Bank in Nigeria participated in the study. Three hypotheses were tested using t-test for independent groups and 2x2 Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). Results revealed that high job dissatisfaction has no significant influence on fraudulent intent; but workers with low organizational support experienced more fraudulent intent than those with high organizational support. Findings also showed a joint influence of job dissatisfaction and low organizational support on fraudulent intent. Also, interactive influence was found among the two independent variables on fraudulent intent.
