Using survey responses from 1285 employees of a large telecommunications organization, we examine the effects of three elements of implicit employment contracts - compensation, benefits, and employment security. Findings suggest that employees are highly sensitive to changes in the employment security, base pay, and medical plan cost provisions of implicit contracts.
