In recent years destructive deviant behavior in organizations has drawn increasing attention. However, surprisingly little work has been devoted to assessing when the economic value of deviant behavior is tolerable (i.e., the benefits from employing the deviant worker exceed the financial costs of his/her deviance) and when it becomes unbearable (i.e., the financial cost of the deviance exceeds the benefits accrued from his/her employment). The purpose of the present paper is to introduce a mathematical model which may resolve this lacuna. In addition, a simulation was conducted and its results were reported in order to illustrate the usefulness of the proposed mathematical model. In conclusion it is suggested that the present model be further examined empirically in the real workplace.
