Abstract

With employee turnover becoming a significant managerial problem, the purpose of this paper is to examine the effect of organisational justice on employees’ job satisfaction. This study is based on a questionnaire survey conducted in Saudi Arabia. Based on a model developed for this study, the paper uses empirical research to determine the relationship between distributional, procedural, and interactional justices on employees’ job satisfaction. Findings of this study reveal that distributive and interactional dimensions of organisational justice have influence on the employees’ job satisfaction in the Kingdom. The limitation of sample size and generalisation of results for the entire Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, although sample has been confined to the eastern region are some limitations of this study. This study makes a valuable contribution given the fact that there is a dearth of empirical studies of this nature undertaken in the Middle East region.
