This study aims to investigate and to find out employees’ definiton and views on organizational politics in the their own organization and compare the differences of their views based on the two sectors of organization; The Public Sector and The Private Sector. Besides that, this study looks as how employees from different sectors cope with organizational politics. Four employees, two from the public sector and another two more from the private sector were interviewed based on the reseach questions of this study. Their age and gender was not taken into consideration because this study does not study on both characteristics. Data was then analyzed with reference to the Grounded Theory and carefully studied. There were simply four steps involved: coding, concepting, categoring, and coming up with theories. Findings showed the following patterns: a) there was a coping process which employees from the public sector and private sector followed, b) there seemed to be a difference of defining and viewing organizational politics by the public and private sector, c) the main elements contributing to organizational politics consisted of the boss, colleagues, multidimensional of human perception towards organizational politics, cross-cultural differences, power, position and promotion. Models were developed as a result from this study . The findings from this study hopes to enable future research in the field of organizational behaviour particularly organizational politics.
