Handbook of Management Scales/Interpersonal justice
Interpersonal justice (alpha = 0.93/0.94)[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.
Interpersonal justice reflects the degree of respect and propriety authority figures use when implementing procedures.
Items[edit | edit source]
- Has your supervisor treated you in a polite manner?

- Has your supervisor treated you with respect?
- Has your supervisor refrained from improper remarks or comments?

Comments[edit | edit source]
The mean value was above four. Given that a 5-point scale was used, future researchers could slightly adapt the items in order to shift the mean value to the center (e.g., “always treated you” rather than “treated you”).
