Organizational politics has dysfunctional outcomes for individuals, groups, or organizations. Gender differences exist in job attributes and studies indicate that male and female employees have different perceptions of their roles. As a result, men and women can experience different levels of perceptions regarding organizational politics. This study provides an empirical assessment of the gender differences in perceptions of organizational politics (POP) and its relationship with job satisfaction, organizational commitment, job involvement, job stress and turnover intentions. Data was collected from respondents of a large institute of management who were enrolled in evening classes and work during day time. Response rate was 85% comprising of 256 usable responses out of 300. The result of the study showed that perceptions of organizational politics differ significantly for males and females. Specifically, women perceived a higher level of politics in their workplace and reported higher levels of stress, lower levels of job satisfaction, organizational commitment and job involvement than did male employees who perceived a low level of organizational politics. These results are consistent with previous research but in a non western context. Implications of the findings and suggestions for future research are discussed.
