Adeoye, S. O., Egbuta, O. U., Ayeni, D., Akewusola, L. Adeoye, E. A.

This study examined the functional relationship between workplace-terrorism dimensions and employees’ intention to quit. It explored three related human resource management theories, specifically, reciprocity theory, labour process theory, and need theory to conceptualise a model of workplace-terrorism and employees’ intention to quit (WTE & EIQ model) having organisational justice as moderating factor. Reciprocity and labour process theories being the underpinning theories in the study were interpolated into explaining the concept of workplace-terrorism and quitting intentions. It was concluded in a supportive mode that reciprocity and labour process theory view workplace-terrorism as a form of management control technique adopted or adapted by organisations to enable maximum extraction of surplus from labour. The model was designed to serve as a working tool for solving organisational challenges in the administration of justice and fairness as it pertains to employees’ relational problems at the various level of management in the workplace.
