Students were selected only on the basis of having two to three years of work experience and also from good business and economics colleges from India and Hungary.FindingsThe results were analyzed using partial least square–structural equation modelling method to test the hypotheses and it showed that equity sensitivity has a positive effect on employee mental health. The findings of the study highlight that even with significant cultural differences equity sensitivity perception does not differ between Hungary and India.Research limitations/implicationsThe relationship between equity sensitivity and employee mental health is an important area to understand in a volatile economy.
