Psychology at Workplace (Comparative Analysis)

from legal contracts on procedures followed in the event of breach of contract. Breach of a legal
contract allows the aggrieved party to seek enforcement in court of law. Breach of a psychological
contract, however, offers no such recourse, and the aggrieved party may choose only to withhold
transactional or relational contributions made to the employer or organization (Spindler 1994).
