Hasan Ali Al-Zu’bi

Abstract


This study examined the relationship between of organizational justice encompassed by three components:
(distributive justice, procedural justice and interactional justice) and job satisfaction, and employees’ perceptions
of workplace justice. The study investigated the relationship of these justice measures in the Jordanian
environment. The data was collected through the distribution of questionnaires among 229 employees of number
Electrical Industrial Companies selected through a stratified random sampling.
The study findings show that only one significant relationship exists between the age of respondents and their
perceptions of organizational justice. The findings also suggested that this was positive association
organizational justice and job satisfaction. Employee job satisfaction depends upon the organizational justice of
managers. Nevertheless, in measuring the three dimensions of organizational justice, the current study used
survey items that asked employees to respond to items that asked whether something is generally fair.
Finally, although this study was conducted in Jordan, it is anticipated that the findings may have relevance on a
broader scale. By replicating this study in different countries and contexts the results could be very helpful for
developing a new model of organizational justice with new implementation techniques that can be implemented
easily and successfully.
