Validation of an organisational justice measurement model in a financial organisation
O. Ledimo*
Content: Research indicates that organisational justice has a positive effect on employee behaviour and it plays an important role in human resource management practices. Despite the value of organisational justice in human resource management, there is paucity of valid measurement models to assess it.  The purpose of this paper is to describe how exploratory factor analysis was applied to establish whether Organisational Justice Measurement Instrument (OJMI) is a valid and reliable instrument for assessment of organisational justice. The second aim was to validate the measurement model of organisational justice using Structural Equation Modelling (SEM).
Purposive sample (n = 80) consisted of financial organisation employees in South Africa. Cross-sectional survey was used to collect data. Analysis of data was conducted using factor analysis, Cronbach's coefficient Alpha and structural equation model fit indices.
Results indicate OJMI is a valid and reliable measure for organisational justice. It was found that the model fitted the data well; confirming a statistically significant and positive measurement model of organisational justice.
The Limitation is that participants were employees of one organisation, this sample compositions suggests findings could not be generalised to other organisational contexts.
In terms of practical implications, findings provide leaders, practitioners and managers with alternative measure of organisations justice. This measure can help organisations develop human resource management strategies that reflect just and fair practices.
The value of this paper is that it contributes to academic knowledge and practical assessment of organisational justice.
