Using hypothesis-driven meta-analytic procedures on 30 samples containing 118 correlations, researchers examined competing models of the relationship between lateness and assorted work-related variables. Consistent with a progression withdrawal model, the mean corrected lateness-absence correlation, .40, was found to be higher than the lateness-turnover correlation, .27. Hypotheses regarding the relationships between lateness and attitudes, performance, and demographics were generally supported. Methodological issues, including the need for longitudinal designs in the field and the inclusion of other moderators such as organizational and personality variables, were discussed.
