The work of Hackman and his associates stimulated current interest in work redesign (Hackman & Lawler, 1971; Hackman & Oldham, 1976, 1980).

The paper offers an introduction to research that concerns itself with the ‘dark side’ of organization and attempts to bring theoretical resources from a range of disciplines to bear upon the problem.

The management field is characterized by two countervailing perspectives that attempt to define what constitutes appropriate research valued by scholars and practitioners. Historically the field has moved from an emphasis on one or the other - from applied research and practice to basic research and theory and then back again. It is our contention that a shift toward emphasizing a basic research focus has occurred at the expense of applied research, but that as efforts to increase the emphasis o...

The purpose is to highlight avenues for organizational research that arise because of the legal issues that employers face. For each sour...
