Aims and Hypotheses of the Empirical Study

  • Maida Petersitzke

It is a first aim of this empirical study to clarify the relationship between the three dimensions of a positive psychological contract, namely breach of obligation by the organisation, employee trust in organisation and employee perceptions of fairness of the exchange. This presents an extension of existing research on breach of the psychological contract. The first aim is addressed by considering the relationship between different evaluations of breach as well as trust in the organisation and perceived fairness of the exchange. Clarifying the relationship between the dimensions of a positive psychological contract is viewed as a prerequisite to researching supervisor opportunities to facilitate positive psychological contracts.
