Measuring Severity of Internet Abuse in the Workplace: Creation of a Thurstone Scale
Access to the Internet at work allows employees to be more effective in their jobs. However, it also gives employees the opportunity to engage in non-productive behavior. Several studies have examined the problem of Internet abuse in the workplace. However, a measure of severity of Internet abuse is still lacking. This research employs a Thurstone scale to create an appropriate measure of severity of Internet abuse in the workplace.
