    Samantha D. Hansen (formerly Montes) is an Associate Professor of Organizational Behaviour and HR Management in the Department of Management at University of Toronto-Scarborough, with a cross-appointment to the Organizational Behaviour and HR Management area at Rotman.  Her primary research interest concerns the employee-employer relationship. This work focuses on the exchange of resources between employees and employers, including what each party promises, expects and is obligated to give to the other. Ultimately, this research explores how the quality of the employment relationship can impact employee perceptions (e.g., fairness), affect (e.g., anger), attitudes (e.g., commitment), and behaviours (e.g., job performance).

    Research and Teaching Interests

    My primary teaching interests lie in Organizational Behaviour and Human Resource Management. My research interests include psychological contracts, employee expectations, organizational trust, and organizational fairness. Much of my research focuses on employee attitudes and behaviours as they relate psychological contract breach and unmet expectations.
