There is a dearth of research on psychological contract breach in the non-western context. The aim of the present study is to further our understanding of managing psychological contract perspectives among the Asian employees. The present research expands the psychological contract literature by exploring the significance of psychological contract in the non-western context and identifying probable employees’ responses after a psychological contract breach which will be indicative to the practitioners to manage human resources efficiently and effectively. An interview with 27 employees from Bangladesh was conducted. Thematic analysis of the interviews was conducted and revealed the content, employee feelings, attitudinal and behavioural consequences of the employees as a result of a psychological contract breach. Theoretical and practical implications of psychological contract breach in terms of managing employees in the Asian context are discussed.
