This research tries to reveal the causes, the methods, the consequences of breaching the psychological contract and ways to minimize the chance to breach the contracts at workplaces. The author conducted interviews with six junior level employees and six managers in this research. The interviewees chosen deliberately as they had all experienced the breach of the contracts in organizations.

One of the focuses of this research is the causes of the breach of the psychological contract.
