The purpose of this study is to examine the functionality of control mechanisms in regards to workplace loafing. It is hypothesized that the organizational controls are negatively associated with non-cyber loafing but not with cyber-loafing, and also, self-control is negatively associated with both. Furthermore, non-cyber loafing was considered as the predictor of cyber-loafing, and self-control as the moderator of organizational controls/loafing relationship. As predicted, organizational controls were only associated with non-cyber loafing. In addition, self-control was associated with both the cyber- and non-cyber loafing, and non-cyber loafing associated with cyber-loafing. Contrary to the prediction, self-control did not ameliorate the effect of proximity on non-cyber loafing. Altogether, this study is the first to investigate the simultaneous and interactive effects of self-control and organizational controls in predicting the variance of both the cyber- and non-cyber loafing. The results provide insights to understand why and when the organizational controls should be implemented and/or self-control should be emphasized
