Preemployment Honesty Testing: Current Research and Future Directions

By John W. Jones | Go to book overview

due to placing too much emphasis on studies plagued by shortcomings that compromise the studies' findings. These include the use of inappropriate and constricted samples, problems in study design, and limitations of the clinical model of prediction. When these problems are addressed, standardized instruments and an actuarial model have been found to be related significantly to violence in both clinical and work settings.

For employers, job-relevant behaviors such as aggressive dealings with customers should be considered in any measure of violence. The research has shown that persons will reveal violent tendencies on psychological assessment instruments and that many job-relevant violent acts may go undetected using conventional methods. Thus, the ability to predict on-the-job violence offers hope to employers in controlling the many costs of counterproductivity.
