MNC home country government policies/events may not resonate well with HCN employees. If HCN employees disagree with the MNC’s home country policies or events, such policies or events may provoke or stir emotions toward the MNC’s home country thus increasing the MNC’s political risk. Exploring the issue of a MNC’s home country policies or events impact on the HCN employees’ organizational commitment, we develop a conceptual model and propositions that consider the characteristics of the MNC, the policy/ event, and the individual.
