  • Abstract When exploring the phenomenon of job insecurity, most studies focused on environmental factors, such as unemployment rate or organizational changes. However, past research rarely considered supervisory leadership as an origin of employees’ perceptions of job insecurity. That is, employee’s everyday work attitudes and behaviors would be affected by perceived job insecurity when facing supervisor’s abusive of power. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to explore the effects of abusive supervision on employee affective commitment and employee performance, and further investigate the mediating effect of job insecurity.
    This study uses questionnaires to obtain empirical data which was collected from a diverse sample of full-time employees drawn from a variety of organizations in Taiwan. A total of 700 questionnaires were distributed and 356 valid questionnaires were returned. The results are summarized as follows: 1) abusive supervision has significant negative effects on affective commitment, whereas abusive supervision has no significant effects on job performance and job insecurity; 2) job insecurity has significant negative effects on affective commitment and job performance; 3) job insecurity cannot serve as a mediator when explaining the effects of abusive supervision on affective commitment and job performance. Implications and recommendations for future research are then discussed.
