This study aimed at exploring the moderating role of perceived organizational politics in the relationship of perceived organizational support with affective organizational commitment, normative organizational commitment, in-role job performance, organizational citizenship behavior, job satisfaction, turnover intention, and job stress among university teachers of Pakistan. Sample of the study included 450 university teachers (278 males and 172 females) from four different geographic locations of Pakistan (Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan and Federal Capital). To assess the correlation between the study variables, Pearson Product Moment correlation was computed. Co-relational analysis showed that perceived organizational support was positively related to affective organizational commitment, normative organizational commitment, in-role job performance, organizational citizenship behavior, and job satisfaction while, it was found to have negative relationship with perceived organizational politics, turnover intention, and job stress. Perceived organizational politics was found to have a positive relationship with turnover intention and job stress and negatively related to perceived organizational support, affective organizational commitment, and job satisfaction. Results of the hierarchical multiple regression showed that perceived organizational politics moderated the relationship of perceived organizational support with in-role job performance, organizational citizenship behavior, and job stress. Limitations of the study are also discussed.
