To step-in or to stand-by: Third party responses to abusive supervision

To step-in or to stand-by

Prof Simon Restubog, Dr Kohyar Kiazad, Prof Karl Aquino, A/Prof  Thomas Zagenczyk and Dr Kristin Scott

Abusive supervision is costly in Australian organisations. Little is known about the experiences of third parties who are not direct targets of abuse. Indeed, a large percentage of supervisor abuse that is witnessed goes unreported. Using a multi-method approach, this project develops and tests a model that explains third party responses to supervisor abuse. In addition to advancing theory, an evidence-based intervention (including an action tool kit) is developed to empower third parties to combat supervisor abuse by engaging in constructive action. Overall, research outcomes will aim to provide actionable insights into what organisations can do to encourage their employees to take a proactive stance against abusive supervision.
