The present study is a replication and extension of research assessing the positive relationship between Perceived Subordinate Support (PSubS) and positive employee behaviors. We relate those relationships to those of Perceived Organizational Support (POS) and Perceived Supervisor Support (PSS). We also addresses whether PSubS is a unique construct from POS and PSS. We also explored the possibility of a Generalized Perception of Support (GPS) underlying all three support constructs using the bifactor model. Results provide support for a unique PSubS construct, while the existence of an underlying GPS was not supported. The research serves as further construct validation to the perceived support literature.
