Main Abstract Content: State of the Art
Much research has uncovered the powerful effects of justice perceptions on employees’ attitudes and behaviors. Contemporary approaches to organizational justice include the impact of context, individual experiences, health outcomes, longitudinal approaches, and a diversity of what constitutes justice. In this Part 1 symposium, contributions highlight the micro aspects of new organizational justice research.
New Perspectives/Contributions
This symposium brings together 4 presentations with different methodologies (longitudinal studies, experimental and intervention study) from different countries, highlighting new trends in organizational justice research:
Leaders’ unfair actions creates revenge: In an experimental design, Otto, Gollwitzer and Seng suggest that employees react to unfair leadership (abusive supervision) with revenge.
Organizational changes and injustice feelings: Bernhard-Oettel, Näswall and Eib focus on how organizational change processes impact the dynamics of justice perceptions over time, and relate to work attitudes and individual well-being.
Injustice makes people sick: Based on a large-scale survey, Leineweber, Bernhard-Oettel, Peristera and Westerlund investigate the boundary conditions of job insecurity of the longitudinal relationship between interactional justice and sickness absence.
Injustice can be overcome: Francisca Saldanha and Barclay report results from an intervention project focusing on what individuals do to overcome negative consequences of injustice.
The paper presentations will be followed by an interactive discussion.
Research/Practical Implications
Constanze Eib contributes with conceptual ideas for further research on organizational justice. The discussant Laurie Barclay is a renowned scholar in the justice area and will discuss the papers’ contributions and their practical implications.
