This relationship has been observed only in employees’ organizational commitment. Also, there has been a significant relationship between the average index of employees’ organizational commitment and their employment status. According to the results, the average of contractual employees’ commitment was more than other groups (official and etc). However, the mean difference was observed in both obligatory and continuous commitment.
