ABSTRACT
The author proposes the reexamination of psychological contract amid the recession in Great Britain. He admits he only realized the issue when a former student asked him if he done research on the implications of pay freezes, redundancies and public-sector pensions for psychological contract. He says that the economic climate made employees feel that their employers have broken their vows in the contract. He believes that the job security and higher pension receive by public-sector employees are major psychological contract violations.
