The study investigated Machiavellian ideation, work overload and entrepreneurial intention as predictors of workplace incivility among bankers in Anambra State. The participants were 826 bankers who were drawn using systematic and convenience sampling techniques. The participants were made up of 365 men and 461 women with the age range of 24 to 58 years, mean age of 33.9 and standard deviation of 5.4. The study made use of four questionnaires namely- Workplace incivility scale, Mach IV test, Job overload scale and entrepreneurial intention scale. The study adopted a predictive design. Consequently, moderated multiple regression was used as the statistical tool for data analysis. The first hypothesis was confirmed. It showed that Machiavellian ideation significantly predicted workplace incivility among bankers at B = .34 P<.05. The second hypothesis was disconfirmed showing that work overload did not predict banker’s workplace incivility at B=.03 P>.05. Findings indicated that entrepreneurial intention significantly predicted workplace incivility of bankers at B=.10 P<.05, thus confirming the third hypothesis. Furthermore, testing the fourth hypothesis showed that Machiavellian ideation and work overload did not jointly predict workplace incivility of bankers and was subsequently disconfirmed at B= -.01, P>.05. However, the fifth hypothesis was accepted, showing that Machiavellian ideation and entrepreneurial intention jointly predicted workplace incivility of bankers at B=.09, P<.05. Finding indicated that the sixth hypothesis which showed that work overload and entrepreneurial intention did not jointly predict workplace incivility of bankers was rejected at B= -.06, P>.05 Hence Machiavellian ideation and entrepreneurial intention are seen as predictors of workplace incivility among bankers. It is therefore recommended that government and management of banks should ensure that bankers are carried along in decision making for collective rather than selfish interest. They should also ensure job security for bankers as this has the potency of gearing bankers towards thinking of establishing their own businesses which promotes incivility in the workplace.
