Businesses are going international, and one of the major outcomes of businesses going global is the transformation in managerial policies and philosophies. HR practices in India have experienced a sea change and are geared up towards improving the way individual employees perceive working environment. This revolution has created demand for the focus on behavioral aspects of employees in the organization which influence the work life performance. In this paper the author has made an attempt to understand the deviant behaviors followed in organizations. This paper will be partly based on theoretical concepts & partly empirical study that deals with the concept of employee behaviors and its relevance in relation to organization's work environment. The theoretical part consists of a critical review of literature relevant to the concept of employee deviant behavior and concludes in an attempt at a more precise formulation of the concept. The empirical part of the study is based on structured questionnaires served to the employees and floor supervisors of the organized retail outlets situated in Bangalore to know various deviant behaviors shown by employees. Researcher attempted to list out all possible deviant behaviors which are counterproductive to any organization and tried to group them with similarity of nature and impact on organization. The empirical part of the study will be done to provide background information that makes it possible to discuss deviant behavior in a practical context and should therefore not be seen as a direct attempt to confirm the theory.
