D'Silva, Cathlynn 2018. Using the Psychological Contract to Explore the Experiences of Migrant Domiciliary Care Workers within London. PhD Thesis University of East London School of Busines and Law
This qualitative research makes use of the psychological contract construct and literature to explore the lived work perceptions and experiences of migrants undertaking domiciliary care work within London, in their multi- agency type of employment. The researcher examines these using the stories of forty four migrants employed in various types of contingent work arrangements. The participants are drawn from diverse employer types. Data interpretation and analysis was conducted using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis and Hermeneutic Phenomenology. Initially, rich and thick descriptions are availed through an inductive analysis of the verbatim audio recorded interviews in presenting the migrant domiciliary carers‘ work experiences. In the next phase of analysis, the data is interrogated using the psychological contract thereby applying a more deductive approach.
