|Abstract: ||Traditionally, one of the most frequently used outcomes of expatriate adjustment research has been premature return of expatriate employees. However, previous research has not considered premature return as an outcome of a particular type of decision that expatriates make. By adapting a decision-making perspective, we extend expatriate adjustment and international assignment literature in several different directions. To do so, we integrate decision-making, dualistic adjustment, the unfolding model of voluntary turnover (Lee & Mitchell, 1994), the evolutionary search model of turnover (Steel, 2002), and the motives approach to turnover (Maertz & Campion, 2004; Maertz & Griffeth, 2004) to propose multiple decision outcomes, rather than simply premature return, associated with international assignments. The proposed model provides a theoretical framework for considering criteria for examining these outcomes. Propositions and implications for future research and practice are discussed.|
