We would like to thank Peter Hom and Rodger Griffeth for comments on an earlier draft of this article. Professor Russell presents a timely critique of prevailing theory and research on employee turnover and suggests a new and potentially promising way to investigate the topic. We applaud his efforts and contributions. Our comments respond first to his advocacy of rational choice models and second, to his criticisms of the unfolding model and job embeddedness. We close with a discussion of future research issues and practical implications.
