Abstract

This study examines the relationships between organisational justice, perceived organisational support (POS), trust in organisation and organisational citizenship behaviour (OCB) by proposing and testing three competing models. The baseline model links POS to distributive justice as its antecedent, and trust in organisation to procedural justice as its antecedent, while OCB is considered the outcome of POS and trust in organisation. Two alternative models are developed to test the effect of distributive justice on trust in organisation, and that of procedural justice on POS. Several hypotheses are derived from these competing models, and tested with a data set consists of 247 employees in three joint ventures in Guangdong Province of China. The results of LISREL show that the baseline model is better supported than the other two models. Specifically, we find that distributive justice affects POS and procedural justice affects trust in organisation. POS has a significant positive effect on trust in organisation and OCB.
