    Abstract The nowadays organizations are characterized often by interdependence and competition among of people, creating new demands and affecting interpersonal relationships at work. In this context, it would be useful to study emotions at work and especially those emotions that can have important consequences for quality of work life. The focus of this paper is the negative emotion of jealousy. Jealousy can be experienced in labour relationships and involves the feeling that can lead to damage to the competitor. From an evolutionary perspective, the objective of this study is to investigate the presence of the mediation effect of jealousy in the relationship between intra-sexual competition and harming at workplace and if this is different in men and women. The sample was composed by 240 workers from different professional sectors. The results showed that jealousy partially mediated the link between ISC and harming. However, the model is different between genders. There was not mediation effect in the male group. In the female group we found a full mediation effect of jealousy in the relationship between ISC and harming. The present research is one of few studies that examine the particular emotion of jealousy at work. These results contribute to a better understanding of the role of emotions in the workplace.
