This paper attempts to shed some light on the effect of cyberloafing on employee productivity. More specifically, the objective of this study is to assess the relationships between workplace Internet leisure, workplace Internet leisure policy, workplace autonomy orientation, and employee productivity. Data were collected from five banks located in Kuala Lumpur. Self-administered survey questionnaires were employed among which 282 completed questionnaires were returned and found usable for further analysis. The data were analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) software version 21.0. The result suggests that there is a significant and positive relationship between workplace Internet leisure and employee productivity. However, it is found that workplace autonomy orientation and workplace Internet leisure policy do not affect employee productivity. Implications, limitations and future research directions are discussed at the end of the paper.
