Abstract and Keywords

In this chapter, we provide a detailed examination of the relationship between employee justice perceptions and organizational citizenship behavior OCB. Beginning with the earliest research on OCB, we articulate how these two topics within organizational sciences developed alongside one another as researchers attempted to articulate not only what kinds of justice would influence extra-role behaviors but also how those effects emerge. We also discuss modern trends in the study of justice and OCB, examining new theoretical perspectives and multifoci, third-party, and multilevel approaches to assessing this phenomenon. Our aim is to provide a comprehensive discussion of not only where research has been but also where it will go as scholars continue to develop new insights into justice and citizenship behaviors in the workplace.

Keywords: organizational citizenship behaviors, OCB, organizational sciences, extra-role behaviors, justice, citizenship behaviors
