The present study was conducted to investigate the relationship between workplace incivility, organizational constraints and turnover intentions in college teachers. It was hypothesized that there would be a significant positive relationship among workplace incivility, organizational constraints and turnover intentions in college teachers. Secondly, workplace incivility would predict turnover intentions. Through cross sectional correlational research design, a sample of (N = 72) college teacher, including (n = 55 men and n = 27 women) from different private colleges was recruited by employing non-probability convenient sampling strategy. A self-constructed Demographics Information Sheet, Workplace Incivility Scale (Cortina, Williams & Mgley, 2003), Organizational Constraints Scale (Spector, 1997) and Turnover Intention Scale (Fichman, 1999) were used as assessment tools for the study. Data were analyzed through SPSS 20, by applying Pearson product moment correlation and linear regression and results showed positive relationship between workplace incivility and turnover intentions. Further, the workplace incivility positively predicted turnover intentions in teachers. The results of the present study provides a better understanding of the workplace environment for teachers for further research and potential policy making.
