Abstract: No one can refuse or deny the importance of justice whether it is experienced in societies or in organizational systems. The term Justice has been of great interest and discussed in philosophy, theology and political science throughout the history but its ultimate goal is to keep harmony and peace by maximizing of welfare across all interrelated individuals. Researchers have argued that organizational justice always affect in stimulating or shaping employees’ behaviors or attitudes towards organizations and their immediate supervisors. This can either be positive or negative depending upon the experiences of the employees in absence or presence of justice perceptions. The primary focus of the current study is to investigate the direct relationship of justice dimensions with different employees’ behaviors and attitudes at workplaces in the Pakistani context. This study has included one employees’ behavior and two attitudes (OCBI, job satisfaction, & affective commitment respectively) as moderators based on their correlation with specific justice dimensions (distributive justice, procedural justice, and interactional justice) as found in two recent Meta analytic studies conducted in the area of organizational justice. Each moderator has strong correlation with one specific justice dimension than other two dimensions. The second purpose of the study is to find out how employees’ attitudes and behavior (job satisfaction, affective commitment and OCBI) moderate the relationship between organizational justice dimensions and workplace outcomes (performance and turnover intentions). Data was gathered from 350 employees of Telecom sector of Pakistan by administering self-reported questionnaires. Total eight hypotheses were proposed in the current study. Five hypotheses were regarding exploring main affects on the outcomes and three were regarding to explore the moderated ii effects of justice dimensions on outcomes. All hypotheses got empirical support from the data except first hypothesis which got partial support. The findings showed that job satisfaction, affective commitment and OCBI moderated the relationship between justice dimensions and workplace outcomes. This study explored the importance of fairness perceptions in understanding the development of employees’ behaviors and attitudes and how these behaviors and attitudes affect employees’ job performance and turnover intentions at workplace ultimately.
