The Dimensions and Consequences of Organizational Politics Perceptions: A Confirmatory Analysis (pages 1747-1764)

The present study, using confirmatory factor analysis, investigated the factorial structure of organizational politics perceptions. A second‐order factor model was supported for both supervisor and subordinate samples. In addition, the hypothesis that different dimensions of perceived organizational politics lead to different satisfaction outcomes was also supported. Furthermore, it was demonstrated that subordinates reacted more negatively than did supervisors to politics perceptions. The results of the present study are discussed in light of directions for future research.
