Organization justice evaluations, job control, and occupational strain

J Appl Psychol. 2001 Jun;86(3):418-24. doi: 10.1037/0021-9010.86.3.418.


To explore how organizational justice evaluations affect the occupational stress process, the authors formulated and tested the following 2 hypotheses: (a) The effect of job control on strain is mediated by justice evaluations, and (b) justice evaluations moderate the effect of job control on occupational strain. The results of structural equation modeling, based on data collected from 688 employees, suggest that job control affects strain through justice evaluations. Thus, the results of this study supported the 1st hypothesis and provided evidence that perceptions of the organization are potential factors contributing to employee health.
