As one of the most common and rapidly growing neurodevelopmental disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has come to the forefront of scientific research. Despite the growing prevalence, the outcomes associated with adults with ADHD have not been examined from an organizational perspective. Based on research from the ADHD literature as well as the organizational literature, the present study examined the relationship between ADHD and Counterproductive Workplace Behaviors (CWBs). Utilizing a population of 298 participants from the entering workforce demographic (ages 18-22), all of whom were working adults, relationships were explored through moderated multiple regression. Results demonstrate support for the proposed direct effect relationship between ADHD and CWBs. Implications and future directions are discussed.
