Alarith Uhde, Nadine Schlicker, Dieter P. Wallach, Marc Hassenzahl: Fairness and Decision-making in Collaborative Shift Scheduling
In order to understand what makes scheduling decisions fair from the worker perspective, Uhde et. al. carried out phenomenological interviews and an experimental vignette study asking nurses about fairness in different scenarios. They found that generally equality is the guiding norm, while individual conflicts are perceived as fairest when based on individual needs.
