Any behavior that does not conform to social organizational norms is deviance. This study was conducted to test whether there is any difference in organizational deviance and interpersonal deviance behavior, deviance behavior of male-female university teachers. All teaching staff of the University of Sargodha was target population and for convenience fifty lecturers of post graduate level were selected randomly for the sample. Of these respondents 26 were male and 24 were female. A broad and theoretically derived measure of deviant behavior in the workplace was used. This measure was developed by Rebecca J. Benett (University of Toledo) and Sandra L. Robinson (University of British Columbia). The results of this study reveal that the ratio of organization deviance in the university's workspace is more dominant as compared to interpersonal deviance and the male teaching staff of University of Sargodha is more deviant at workplace as compared to female teaching staff.
