Coping styles are the important and effective factors on employees’ behavior in organizations. According to the moderating role of efficient and inefficient coping styles, the main purpose of this research was to study the role of job stress on deviant behaviors. The research sample group consisted of three hundred eighty teachers (192 male and 188 female) in Esfahan, Iran. The results of hierarchical regression analysis revealed that efficient coping styles moderates marginally the relationship between enterprise and challenging stress with deviant behaviors toward individuals. Further analysis revealed that only for women, efficient coping styles moderates the relationship between enterprise and challenging stress with deviant behaviors toward individuals. That is, in high efficient coping styles, there is a positive and significant relationship between enterprise stress and deviant behaviors toward individuals, but in low efficient coping styles, rather than in high efficient coping styles, there is a stranger relationship between challenge stress and deviant behaviors toward individuals.
