The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between perceived organizational politics and psychological contract breach and violation in pharmaceutical employees. It was hypothesized that perceived organizational politics would have a positive relationship with psychological contract breach and violation. Moreover, perceived organizational politics would be a predictor of psychological contract breach and violation. Correlation research design was used in present study. The sample comprised of 150 employees (N = 150) including all males, with age range of 23- 49 years (M = 31.85, SD = 6.29). The Perception of Organizational Politics Scale (POPS; Kacmar & Carlson, 1997), Psychological Contract Breach Scale and Psychological Contract Violation Scale were used to assess the study variables (Morrison & Robinson, 2000). Results indicated that there was a positive relationship between perceived organizational politics and psychological contract breach. Moreover, both psychological contract breach and violation were positively predicted by perceived organizational politics. The study has important implications in the field of organizational psychology and can be used in improving organizational performance and organizational strategies.
