Workplace gossip is widespread in various organizations and becomes an influential non-official information channel. Workplace negative gossip consists of three parties: senders, receivers, and targets. Previous research on workplace gossip has focused on senders or receivers by using laboratory and small sample size data. Lack of attention has been paid to the gossip victims by using large sample data. The present study reviewed the literature of the antecedents and outcomes of workplace negative gossip according to the victim perspective and provided a framework for future studies.
