Using a crossover model, we examined the relationships among family undermining by their partner and the psychological strain and workplace deviance of employees, and also investigated the moderating effect of employees’ emotional exhaustion on their psychological strain, leading to workplace deviance. Analysis of 3-wave data obtained from 332 employee–partner dyads (246 male employees, 86 female employees) at a large industry in southern Taiwan demonstrated a significant positive relationship between family undermining and employees’ workplace deviance, mediated by psychological strain. The results show that when employees’ emotional exhaustion level was high this increased the relationship between psychological strain and workplace deviance. These findings confirm that the crossover model can be used to examine the direction of the effect of family undermining on workplace issues. Theoretical and practical implications of the study are discussed.
