The present study aims at identifying some dimensions of deviant workplace behavior, for this purpose being conducted a survey in small and medium-sized enterprises in Bucharest. In structuring the objectives of this research, the starting point was a typology of deviant workplace behavior drawn from the literature review. Study findings showed that the most probable forms of deviant workplace behaviorcategory would be those of the production deviance. The most frequently mentioned forms of deviant workplace behavior that employees have noticed at their colleagues are: spreading rumors and gossiping and great prolongation of breaks during working hours. Regarding the adoption of some forms of deviant behavior by themselves, most employees said they have not acted in this manner. Starting from the initial model concerning deviant workplace behavior typology, the intensity of manifestation of each form of behavior of employees and managers of small and medium-sized enterprises in Bucharest was evaluated.
