Procedural justice (alpha = 0.86/0.90)[edit]


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).


Organizational justice refers to perceptions of fairness in decision-making and resource allocation environments.

Procedural justice refers to the perceived fairness of decision-making procedures.


  • Are you able to express your views during those procedures?
  • Can you influence the decisions arrived at by those procedures?
  • Are those procedures applied consistently?
  • Are those procedures free of bias?
  • Are those procedures based on accurate information?
  • Are you able to appeal the decisions arrived at by those procedures?
  • Do those procedures uphold ethical and moral standards?
