The aim of this study was to provide validity evidence of the organizational conflict inventory (ROCI-II) in a sample of 353 Brazilian workers. This inventory, evaluates five styles of handling interpersonal conflicts with then person's supervisor, in the organizational environment: dominating, avoiding, obliging, integrating and compromising. The instrument was first translated and adapted from English into Brazilian Portuguese. We applied a confirmatory factor analysis using DWLS method and comparing alternative models. The analyses suggest that the model supports the five handling styles of interpersonal conflict in the Brazilian context.These results should be considered as an initial empirical evidence of construct validity of the instrument to the context studied. Future studies may evaluate evidence of validity of the instrument in Brazilian samples with different job characteristics, socioeconomic or educational training, among others
