  • Abstract We adopt the model of Auriol and Brilon (2014) to discuss how the workers with intrinsic motivation affect the optimal labor contracts in nonprofit and profit sectors. Most of the models suppose that the intrinsic motivation of workers was impure altruism, but in fact, both the pure and impure altruism may arise when workers face different organizations. We assume that the workers are pure altruism if they are good workers. There are also some workers with anti-social behavior such that they can obtain pleasure from this destructive behavior. This paper applies principal-agent model by involving intrinsic motivation to determine the optimal contract. We find that without anti-social behavior, the nonprofit sector with the pure altruism of workers can offer lower wage and bonus payments than the profit sector does whereas monitoring is at the same level as in the profit sector. With the presence of anti-social behavior, both sectors only can employ higher monitoring to avoid the damage caused by such behavior. Furthermore, the profit sector is more attractive to the workers with anti-social behavior so it has to impose a higher monitoring level to deter these workers from entering the sector.
