Abstract : The impact of discussing vs., not discussing salary action on process characteristics (e.g. participation), content characteristics (e.g. work-planning) and PA outcomes (e.g., utility and satisfaction) is examined in a sample of supervisor subordinate pairs. Also contingency factors are evaluated to see if they moderate the impact of discussing salary. The results indicated that salary discussion tended to have a positive impact on process content and outcomes. Of the five contingency factors investigated, only performance level had an intervening impact. Low performers, compared to the high performer group, evidenced a more positive relationship between extent of salary discussion and PA characteristics and outcomes. Reasons and implications are discussed. (Author)
