Employees who view the employer as fair will usually feel better about the work environment knowing the employer will act with fairness across the board, regardless of rank, title, or job description.
Another important factor to consider is if each of the organization's employees is being treated fairly. An organization should ensure that they create and follow a code of ethics in which employees feel that both the employee and the employer are held accountable and encouraged to be ethical in treatment to one another. This translates as a feeling by employees that the employer trusts them in their jobs and professions and that all employees are treated fairly and justly in all actions and company pursuits. This means that each employee should be treated
Throughout years in the criminal justice system, women being incarcerated has increased drastically. Since the amount of women offenders increased above male offenders, equality is sought out. There is an expand amount of gender disparities in federal cases. With women seeking equality through justice over the decades, changes should be made within the justice system to provide impartiality, acknowledge the gender difference and it’s importance.
Procedural justice, is concerned with making and applying decisions according to fairness. Rules must be impartially followed and consistently applied in order to create an unbiased decision. Those carrying out the procedures should be neutral, and those directly affected by the decisions should have some voice or representation in the decision-making process such as a jury and its witness testimonies. Procedural justice amounts to four basic actions such as treat people with respect, listen to what they have to say, make fair decisions, and explain your actions. Social justice, is the largest and most important form of justice to most societies. Social justice is about assuring the protection of equal access to liberties, rights, and opportunities,

Companies are supposed to be able to achieve and demonstrate an ever increasing performance showing improvement on leading in their industries to acquire competitive advantages. Having a high level of performance could be greatest achieved with competent and motivated employees. The conduct of business in an organization with an ethical manner is of great importance to secure an increasing performance as well.

The importance of organizational justice cannot be overlooked in today competitive business where individual, group, team, leadership, and organizational behavior are paramount. The diversity behaviors need to be treated with extreme caution as they can make or break an organization. The development of a competent and reliable workforce that promotes the organization’s growth can be realized by advancing two components of organizational justice – distributive and procedural. Largely, organizational justice is associated with workplace
It is also called the ‘simultaneously fair treatment of individuals in a given situation, with the result that everybody gets what they deserve’. So ‘fair’ point out that people receive what they deserve, whereas ‘equal’ point out that everyone gets the same share of social capital and benefits. In other words, fairness demonstrates that all members receive an equal opportunity of social benefits. The concept of justice results on whether it refers to processes or outcomes. The procedural justice (known as the former) shed lights on how rules and laws function and how members are equally treated by those rules (degree of fairness). Moreover, there are 3 types of justice framework judging the fairness for various situations: the distributive, procedural and retributive justice. First, the distributive justice- fairness in dividing the outcomes or results or resources. For example, salary of employees depending on their sector in business such as: their skills. Second, the procedural justice- the fairness of decisions made, for example: human rights. Finally, the retributive justice- it is the fairness in fixing the wrongs, for example: punishments or
Procedural justice is about justice and fairness. Procedural justice shapes an individual or community’s “perceptions about authority figures.” Also, procedural justice encompasses a dispute resolution process element in which an individual may believe that he or she was “treated justly and fairly during personal encounters with agents of authority.” Procedural justice is also concerned with maintaining an individual’s worth and status rather than self-interested gain. In other words, an individual values dignity and respect rather than trying to prove that he or she is not subordinate. The theory proposes that people who are treated fairly will more likely cooperate with authoritative figures during an interaction and subsequent interactions.
Many of the most important aspects of and decisions about social organization hinge on an individual or society’s conception of justice. Because this conception of justice has tremendous influence over the way societies are structured, political theorists interested in understanding and improving society place great importance on understanding and articulating the nature of justice. While most of the political theorists we have read in class have proposed definitions of justice, none of them sufficiently incorporate the many dimensions of justice while remaining specific enough to allow for relatively consistent distinctions between the just and unjust. To balance these competing demands, I propose that justice is the impartial ordering of
The fairness principle requires that all stakeholders be treated fairly and it defines fairness in four ways. Reciprocal fairness speaks to treating other parties fairly and having them treat the company and its employees properly as well. Distributive fairness discusses the proper allocation of limited corporate resources to maximize their benefit for the company as a whole. Competitive fairness involves interaction with existing and potential competitors. Competitive fairness must include fair treatment of your competitors and does not allow collusion, bribes, or other illegal relationships. Procedural fairness requires that the company and its employees treat all parties that interact with the firm properly and with due process, including any internal employees who notify authorities of any illegal actions taking place at the company (Stanwick & Stanwick, 2009).
Over the decades, the concept of justice has been continually evolving. This is occurring based upon different moral or legal interpretations. Evidence of this can be seen with observations from Burke (2011) who said, "Few things are of more importance to a society than its concept of justice. This is because it is justice that provides criterion for the legitimate use of force. In the name of justice people are detained, arrested, handcuffed, put on trial and punished. This concept is used to provide every society with some kind of social order. Over the last 200 years, a revolution has taken place with these principles. Our idea of it is what we employ, when dealing with ordinary individuals in daily life including: making agreements, paying bills, resolving disputes and putting criminals in jail. This is a concept that is as old as recorded history and it is familiar to people everywhere. What makes it so unique is that these ideas are constantly changing which focuses on society as a whole and how people are interacting with each other. " (Burke)
All employees analyze their environment and strive to be recognized and rewarded for their hard work and dedication they put into the company, in a word they are seeking justice. Justice can be defined as a person receiving what they feel they are entitled to and if they do not receive what they deserve, the situation may boarder on injustice. Unfortunately in today’s society justice and appreciation are not given out to all those deserving (Pinder, 1998). Within the Equity theory there are three justice theories. The first of which is distributive justice, this touches on if the referent feels that the outputs are fair that are given to the employees. This comes into play
The organizational justice (OB, p. 256) is taken to extremes. Implementing the same reward through the company notwithstanding local market and standard of living, notwithstanding individual performance creates the feeling of inequity and does not encourage doing better than the average. Attempts to minimize sabotage appear to focus on treating employees fairly and honestly, by
