Abstract or Description
This paper examines the empirical evidence for Adams' theory of inequity. Studies testing propositions concerning the effects of inequity on performance and on allocation of rewards, and concerning the determinants and the psychological state of inequity are analyzed. There seems to be initial support for the theory. Some methodological and theoretical issues relevant for further validating the theory are reviewed.
