Abstract and Keywords

This chapter discusses justice climate and culture as emergent phenomena that originate in individual perceptions of justice. Justice climate, which refers to group experiences of fairness, has emerged from past work focusing on individual experiences of justice. This research has shown that justice climate incrementally affects employee perceptions of fairness as well as work outcomes. Justice culture, which is discussed in light of research on organizational and national culture, reflects shared meanings and symbols within an organization regarding fairness. The chapter concludes with a model describing the relationship between justice climate and justice culture, as affected by individual and organizational influences, and provides an agenda for future research on these two constructs.

Keywords: fairness, groups/teams, justice, justice climate, justice culture, multilevel constructs
