Over the past two decades, researches on workplace deviant behaviors have become increasingly prevalent in the area of organizational behavior. There are both theoretical implications and practical urgency for understanding the impact of workplace deviant behaviors on organizations and their members. The purpose of this paper is to conduct a review of the empirical works on workplace deviant behavior with samples from Asian regions in the past fifteen years. We examined journals in the 2015 list of management and psychology in Taiwan Social Science Citation Index (TSSCI) and 15 highly influential international journals. We drew on Robinson and Bennett (1995) framework and conducted a systematic analysis on the studies of workplace deviant behaviors in Asia. We aim to understand the current status of researches on workplace deviant behaviors. Based on our review, we suggested that there are unique cultural implications for studies on workplace deviant behaviors in Asian regions. We propose directions for future studies and expect prominent outcomes. We hope our efforts can be of value for future research on workplace deviant behaviors.
