E. Khan* and Muhammad Akram Riaz
 
 
Content: Lerner argued that “People want to and have to believe they live in a just world so that they can go about their daily lives with a sense of trust, hope, and confidence in their future". The primary objective of this current study was to examine the connection of belief in a just world with job satisfaction and life satisfaction among employees. This is a cross-sectional study and a convenient sampling method was used to obtain the data from public and private sector employees. Multiple Regression Analysis was used to test the assumptions. The Results of the study indicate that personal belief in just world significantly predicts job satisfaction and life satisfaction among employees. Further, general belief in just world and belief in just world for others did not predict job satisfaction and life satisfaction.  Finally, implications and limitations were discussed.
