MAIA, Letícia Gomes  e  BITTENCOURT, Antônio Virgilio Bastos. Validation of a psychological contract instrument. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.3, pp. 409-417. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study aimed to construct and validate an instrument that encompasses the bilateral and multidimensional characters of the content of psychological contracts. The Psychological Contract Instrument (ICP), consists of two scales: the Employee Obligations (EEO) and the Employer Obligations (EER). The validation was performed in a Brazilian, public organization with a sample of 382 newly-hired employees. The data were subjected to exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis. The three-factor solution was deemed most appropriate for both scales. The EEO comprised of 16 items and the EER, 18 items. The empirical structure of the instrument and the psychometric reliability indices determined that the scales’ use is advisable.
