Abstract: This study aimed to investigate the relationship between the experience of workplace incivility and employees' job involvement and to examine the moderating effect of collaborative climate on the relationship between these two constructs. 308 employees of various sectors were surveyed to evaluate their perceptions of workplace incivility, job involvement and collaborative climate. Confirmatory factor analysis was used to investigate the construction of the questionnaire. For testing the hypotheses, the relationships among workplace incivility, collaborative climate and job involvement were analysed by using the structural equation modelling (SEM) technique. The result suggested that employees' job involvement was significantly influenced by the experienced workplace incivility. Each dimension of workplace incivility was related to employees' job involvement. The results revealed that job involvement is not significantly influenced by employees' perceptions of collaborative climate. Further, SEM results showed that perceived collaborative climate does not significantly moderate the relationship between workplace incivility and job involvement.
