The paper examines the issue of equity (internal and external) perception, organizational commitment, and turnover intention of employees belonging to banking and finance, manufacturing, and service sectors. The sample consisted of supervisory level employees who responded to a scale measuring perceived equity/inequity within and outside the organization related to their raise, fringe benefits, promotion, incentives, and salary decisions. Another scale measured their level of organizational commitment and intention to leave the organization. The result suggested significant differences among three groups of employees on a few facets of equity and intention to leave the organization. Findings are discussed in the light of the changing nature of employment in the three sectors.
