The present study represents an extension of previous research examining the measurement equivalence of the Multidimensional Work Ethic Profile (MWEP; Miller, Woehr, & Hudspeth, 2002) across groups. To date, research has supported the measurement equivalence of the MWEP between its English, Spanish, and Korean language versions (Woehr et al., 2007), between male and female respondents (Meriac et al., 2009), and across generational cohorts (Meriac et al., 2010). The present study extends this research by reporting the development of a Polish language version of the MWEP as well as through an examination of the equivalence of the MWEP across U.S. and Polish respondents.
