Project Details


Statistics show that the percentage of employees suffering from stress remains high over the years in Canada (Crompton, 2011). According to a recent Gallup Survey , employees cite unfair treatment as a major cause of job strain in the form of job burnout. Organizational justice (or fairness), defined as the employee’s experience of an equitable and just workplace (Colquitt, Conlon, Wesson, Porter, & Ng, 2001), is therefore an important consideration for employers who want to implement a healthy working environment. As a testimony to the rapid expansion of research in this area, Robbins, Ford, and Tetrick (2012) published a meta-analysis reporting negative associations between perceptions of unfairness and health.
