Abstract and Keywords

The literature on organizational justice has come a long way in the past three decades, but a significant gap still exists. Relatively little attention has been paid to the context in which justice experiences emerge and the role of the organization itself. In this chapter we seek to narrow this gap by reviewing justice research that considers the critical role organizational structure plays in how justice judgments are formed, and the impact they have on the organization and its employees. We examine 30 years of empirical research linking justice and structure, and catalog these efforts across a variety of structural dimensions. We identify patterns in this research and offer suggestions for future research aimed at putting the “organization” back in organizational justice.

Keywords: organizational justice, organizational structure, structural dimensions
