Purpose: Relying on the literature that dealt with the topic of workplace ostracism and Innovative behavior, the current research aims to test the relationship and influence between the workplace ostracism and Innovative behavior in its dimensions (idea generation, idea promotion, idea realization) in technical institutes in AI Furat Al Awsat represented by (Technical Institute of Al Diwaniyah, Technical Institute of Najaf, Technical Institute of Kufa, Technical Institute of Karbala, Technical Institute of Babylon, Technical Institute of Samawah, Technical Institute of Musayyib ) .
Design / Methodology: Data were collected from (453) teachers in technical institutes in AI Furat Al Awsat, and the hypotheses were tested using Pearson's correlation coefficient and structural equation modeling.
Research Results: The workplace ostracism had a negative impact on Innovative behavior and the relationship was negative, as the results proved the validity of the hypotheses and reached a set of conclusions, the most important of which was that the workplace ostracism directly or indirectly affects the behavioral outcomes of workers (such as, Innovative behavior, job performance, and behavior organizational citizenship, job withdrawal behavior...etc).
Originality/Value: The current research tests a model that explores the causes of workplace ostracism and its impact on Innovative behavior.
