Constructing Perceptions of Differential Treatment: An Analysis of Coworker Discourse.
Sias, Patricia M.
Communication Monographs, v63 n2 p171-87 Jun 1996
Finds that coworker conversations regarding differential treatment serve two primary functions: they create perceptions of differential treatment, and they reinforce preexisting perceptions of differential treatment. Shows that members tend to emphasize the subordinate's role in the incident over the supervisor's and rely heavily on equity standards in evaluating incidence of differential treatment. (SR)
