Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Although there is much written about executive compensation in the popular and trade press, little research has examined the influence of executive compensation packages on employees’ attitudes and behaviors. The purpose of this paper is to provide a conceptual model of the influence of justice perceptions related to executive compensation packages on employee outcomes illuminated by precipitating events. The paper includes a review of literature related to executive compensation as well as the integration of relevant theories, such as equity theory and organizational justice. Propositions are offered in order to guide future empirical research.
