Effect Of Psychological Contract Breach On Employee Voice Behavior: Evidence From China
I explored the internal influence mechanism of psychological contract breach on employee voice using hierarchical regression analysis and a bootstrap method. Participants were 232 employees from 5 Chinese private corporations. The results indicated that psychological contract breach was negatively associated with employees' promotive and prohibitive voice. In addition, organizational trust played a completely mediating role in this relationship, and managerial openness moderated the relationship between organizational trust and employees' promotive and prohibitive voice. The results extend previous findings on psychological contract breach and employee voice behavior and clarify their relationship to some extent.
