Abstract

This research has emphasized on the effects of perceived narcissistic supervision and workplace bullying on employee’s silence. It also investigates the role of psychological contract violation as a mediating variable among workplace bullying, perceived narcissistic supervision, and employee silence. Data of 395 employees who are working in the Banking and Telecommunication sector has been tested by Using SMART PLS 3.2.2 Software to assess a mediation model. The results of the study support to our hypothesis. The obtained results show the direct positive relation of perceived narcissistic supervision and workplace bullying with employee silence. These further elaborate the significant positive mediation relation of psychological contract violations among all above mentioned variables. Drawing upon the fairness heuristic theory and conservation of resources theory, the current study added in the literature that psychological contract violation and employee silence have been characterized by stressful working conditions .i.e. perceived narcissistic supervision and workplace bullying. Practical implications and recommendations for future studies for researchers are discussed
