This paper examines the effect of perceived inequality and perceived job insecurity on fraudulent intent of bank employees in Nigeria. A total of 170 participants were used for the study. They were selected from five branches of commercial banks in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti state, Nigeria. Perceived inequality was measured using the perceived inequality in work scale (Corey and Keyes, 1998), while perceived job insecurity was measured using the job insecurity scale (Ashford et al., 1980). Fraudulent intent was measured using a self developed scale. Results reveal that perceived inequality and perceived job insecurity have a significant effect on employee fraudulent intent.
