Abstract:This study examines foreign workers who have been ignored in the Organizational Behavior domain. The study fills a gap in the literature that developed due to an increase in the number of workers who cross national boundaries seeking employment and the lack of a body of literature that examines their unique situations. One hundred fifty four foreign workers in Saudi Arabia responded to a web based survey that inquired about work adjustment, general adjustment, role characteristics, and work attitudes and behaviors. These surveys were matched with one hundred thirty eight supervisor web based surveys that inquired about job performance and other attitudes towards work. Forty three spouses were also surveyed on their general adjustment and the support they provide to the focal worker. Results indicate a relationship between role ambiguity and job performance mediated by an interaction of organizational identification and perceived organizational support. Results also indicate that spousal adjustment increased worker general adjustment, and that relationship is moderated by spousal support. This study sheds light on theoretical analyses of issues facing foreign workers' attitudes and behaviors. Future research and practical implications are discussed.
