All four types of organizational justice - distributive, procedural, interpersonal and informational were included in this study of gender differences, Both male and female respondents perceived the distributive-procedural justice and interpersonal-informational justice pairings similarly and weakly. Females consistently discriminated more clearly across the pairings, however. The effect of the four justices was also found to be gender-dependent. Males' perception of distributive justice directly predicted their turnover intentions and commitment to the organization, while females' perception of distributive justice predicted only job satisfaction. Males' perceptions of procedural and information justice both predicted job satisfaction. Females' informational justice perceptions predicted job satisfaction and commitment to the organization. The paper contributes to the literature by presenting results from all four justice types and the simultaneous use of the three outcomes of job satisfaction, organizational commitment and intention to quit. Overall, the males had a diffuse set of relationships between the justice types and the outcomes, whereas the relationships between the justice types and the outcomes for females tended more to follow a limited number of pathways. The study was validated with data collected on two separate occasions.
