This study extended and tested a theoretical model derived from earlier research on workplace deviance. In prior research it was assumed that certain work group conditions benefit their cohesion. Cohesion, in turn, was assumed to increase social control in work groups. Social control, ultimately, was assumed to reduce workplace deviance. Besides testing these assumptions, this study additionally assessed whether tolerance of deviance in work groups moderates the relation between cohesion and social control. Data from The Survey of the Social Networks of the Dutch partly supported the assumptions made in earlier research but did not support the assumed moderation effect
