Arman Motaghi - Managerial controls and organizational injustice
Accountancy literatures sees managerial controls as tools in managers’ hands to direct and empower employees toward organizational objectives. Nevertheless, managers can use these controls towards their own agency and against employees. In this study, I investigate a case of a misuse of organizational controls by a new management against a senior employee. In order to shade its deficiencies and to stabilize its position among shareholders, the new management used organizational controls and incurred all three types of organizational injustice against a senior employee. This on-going case is going through mediations and later on court hearing by Quebec Occupational Health Agency.
