Handbook of Management Scales/Distributive justice
Distributive justice (alpha = 0.97/0.98)[edit | edit source]
Description[edit | edit source]
Four dimensions of organizational justice were measured with a scale developed and validated by Colquitt (2001): procedual, distributive, interpersonal, and informational justice. The scale ranged from 1 (to a very small extent) to 5 (to a very large extent).
Definition[edit | edit source]
Organizational justice refers to perceptions of fairness in decision-making and resource allocation environments.
Distributive justice refers to the fairness of decision outcomes, and individuals judge it by determining whether the perceived ratio of outcomes to inputs matches those of a comparison other, or whether resource allocations match appropriate norms.
Items[edit | edit source]
- Do those outcomes reflect the effort you have put into your work?
- Are those outcomes appropriate for the work you have completed?
- Do those outcomes reflect what you have contributed to your work?
- Are those outcomes justified, given your performance?
