Abstract and Keywords

Restorative justice represents an emerging perspective within the field of organizational justice. In this chapter, we first provide an overview of the restorative justice perspective, discussing its historical roots as well as more contemporary considerations. Next, we review conceptual and empirical work in organizational science that is relevant to the restorative justice perspective. We then identify directions for future research, emphasizing the potential for restorative justice to contribute to theoretical and empirical work on the topic of how managers and organizations respond to interpersonal wrongdoing. We believe that restorative justice holds significant promise both for scholars and practicing managers by bridging and integrating traditionally divergent views of organizational justice.

Keywords: restorative justice, organizational justice, interpersonal wrongdoing, making amends, forgiveness, reintegration, retributive justice
