The purpose of this study was to examine if certain employees were more likely to become victims of workplace incivility due to an intersectionality of race and weight. This current study collected the data from 76 participants who completed a survey through Amazon’s Mechanical Turk for monetary compensation. The aim of this study was to understand the perspectives of employees experiencing life with intersecting identities. First, it was hypothesized African American women were more likely to report workplace incivility than Caucasian women. Second, it was hypothesized that overweight women were more likely to report workplace incivility than normal weight women. Third, it was hypothesized that women who are both African American and overweight will report more workplace incivility than women who are neither African American, overweight nor Caucasian and overweight. It was lastly hypothesized that the intersectionality of being a African American and overweight female employee will lead to an increase in burnout and turnover, which will be mediated by workplace incivility. None of the hypotheses were supported. The results of this current study indicate that there were no significant racial (African American, Caucasian) or BMI (normal weight, overweight) differences between experiences of workplace incivility, burnout, or turnover intentions. Additional findings and implications for the non-significant findings are discussed.
