Abstract

Confirmatory factor analysis was used to assess the factor structure of Meyer & Allen's (1984) commitment scales. Results supported a three‐factor solution which included a bidimensional continuance commitment construct. Causal links between affective commitment and the two emergent dimensions of continuance commitment (personal sacrifices and low alternatives) were then studied with non‐recursive models. Only one significant relationship emerged—the sacrifice component of continuance commitment had a positive effect on affective commitment. This finding was interpreted from a self‐justification perspective. 1993 The British Psychological Society
