Abstract

The Psychological contract is an unwritten set of expectation's which exist between an
employer and employee in an organisation. The term was first used in the 1960's , and
is attributed as phrase by Argyris in that time, but has become increasingly popular
area of research following the economic down turn in the early 1990's.
There has been increased public interest in the whole area of late which has been
stimulated by fears emulating from employees about their job security in the current
economic downturn.
