Abstract

The aim of this study is to find out how teachers react when they perceive inequity in a school’s remuneration system. A sample of 115 teachers in Estonia’s second-largest city, Tartu, were questioned. While previous studies have treated a perception of equity or inequity more as an individual construct and discussed reactions to it on an individual level, this research shows that organizational members’ shared opinions about equity or inequity can also influence organizational outcomes. Consequently, suggestions are made for better coping with potential inequity perception in the organization.
