Abstract This paper draws on a broad range of theoretical perspectives to frame counter-productive behaviours in an Australian case study. The organisation, FoodWorks is a greenfield site that made a concerted effort throughout the development process to advance a selection process and a semi-autonomous work team (SAWT) environment that facilitated a high level of organisational citizenship behaviours. However, the start-up goals were not met. Furthermore, low wages increased the employee's inclination to engage in counter-productive behaviours.
