Abstract and Keywords

Although there has been some interest in overall justice for about 15 years, it is only in the last 5 years that scholars have begun systematic, empirical research on the construct. In this chapter, we review both theoretical and empirical work on overall justice. We begin with a review of conceptual work on overall justice and address similarities and differences in the conceptualization of the construct. Next we summarize empirical work on overall justice. We categorize this research based on its treatment of overall justice (i.e., as an antecedent, a consequence, a mediator, and a moderator). Finally, we identify strengths and weaknesses of the current research, and suggest directions for future study.

Keywords: overall justice, justice facets, overall fairness, fairness facets, overall justice climate
