Organizational Decision Justice Questionnaire

This instrument measures perceptions of organizational justice. I developed this questionnaire to provide a more contextualized measure of organizational justice, that captures both evaluations of the process and the various criteria that managers are using when making decisions.

The questionnaire was first developed during my PhD at the University of Sussex, U.K. and has been applied in organizations in the US, Germany, UK, Brazil, and New Zealand. It allows for a contexualized assessment of the criteria used by managers when making decisions about pay raises, promotions and dismissals and how employees react to these decisions.
