Abstract:Human Resource Management does not necessarily only has positive effects. The effect the different human resource practices have on employees can be the opposite of what a manager or human resource professional is trying to achieve. This opposite effect is what we call the 'dark side' of Human Resource management. Research on the experience of employees from an employee point of view, and these dark sides of human resource management seems to be lacking. This review examines what kind of research has been done on the dark side effects of Human Resource Management from an employee point of view. It indicates what areas future research need to examine, and what areas has already been researched. The review covers 27 articles, published from 2004 to 2014. The framework used to process the data divides employee well-being into three core dimensions; physical, psychological and social. When you look at the data gathered through this framework, the main findings are that most research has been done towards the physical dimension, and there has not been enough research in the psychological and the social dimension of employee well-being. Recommendations for future research are pointed in this direction.
