Abstract: Using detailed micro data that measures the deviant behaviors of workers in the business outfit of a Nigerian university, the extent to which these behaviors were influenced by some specific instruments that informs the policy stance of the management of the business outfit, was examined in this paper. The logistic regression technique was applied in testing the empirical model that was informed by the Trevino (1986) ‘interactionist’ model. The policy instrument of moral development, job context and tenure of the worker should be applied with succinct concentration on the deviant behaviour in focus. In essence, one cap does not fit all: implying that adequate consideration should be given to the deviant behaviour being focused on and as such, the applicability of the policy instrument should be observed.
