We used data collected from a field survey of 334 supervisor‐subordinate dyads to test a model of the antecedents of abusive supervision. Path analytic tests of moderated mediation provided support for our prediction that supervisors’ depression mediates the relationship between supervisors’ procedural justice and subordinates’ perceptions of their supervisors’ abusiveness and that the mediation framework is stronger when subordinates are higher in negative affectivity. We discuss the study’s implications for theory, research, and practice.
