Empirical research on abusive supervision has primarily focused on the outcomes of this leadership form. Little research attention has been devoted to identifying antecedents leading to abusive supervision behaviors. In addition, questions exist regarding the role of cultural values on abusive supervision and outcome relationships. In this study, I investigate antecedents of abusive supervision by examining how leader personality trait antecedents are associated with abusive supervision. In addition, I investigate how power distance orientation impacts the abusive supervision-outcome linkage and potential underlying mechanisms and compared the relative importance of power distance orientation and job type as moderators. Using multi-wave multi-source field data, the results demonstrate that leader agreeableness is negatively associated with abusive supervision. Power distance orientation, although a significant moderator for the relationship between abusive supervision and performance, is not associated with different mediation mechanisms from abusive supervision on employee outcomes through interactional justice. Interestingly, the results indicate that job type is a significant moderator in the moderated mediation model, indicating different mediation mechanisms from abusive supervision on employee outcomes through interactional justice for white-collar workers and blue-collar workers. The implications of these results are discussed.
