Linear and curvilinear components of job performance were studied in relation to turnover. Neither the linear nor the curvilinear hypothesis was supported as job performance was unrelated to turnover. Other higher-order effects were also not evident as job satisfaction did not moderate the job performance-turnover relationship. Using a path model, indirect linkages between job performance and job satisfaction and job performance and job search were investigated. Niether linkage was supported suggesting that job performance is not central to the turnover process. Implications of these findings for future research were discussed.
