Ideological foundations of perceived contract breach associated with downsizing: An empirical investigation


Rust, K G; McKinley, W; Moon, G; Edwards, J C (2005). Ideological foundations of perceived contract breach associated with downsizing: An empirical investigation. Journal of Leadership and Organizational Studies, 12(1):37-52.

Abstract

This paper explores the effects of three managerial ideologies on the degree of psychological contract breach perceived in connection with a downsizing event. Results from surveys conducted in the U.S. and Singapore suggest that a strong belief in the ideologies of market competition or shareholder interest reduces the perceived contract breach associated with a downsizing, while strong belief in the third ideology, the ideology of employee worth, has the opposite effect. Theoretical implications and suggestions for future research are discussed.
