The Quest for Justice on the Job
Essays and Experiments


October 1995 | 240 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
A collection of influential writing on the subject of justice in organizations, The Quest for Justice on the Job introduces readers to the basic concepts of justice in the workplace. Organized around various subthemes--impression management, performance appraisals, employee theft and compliance, monetary rewards, and nonmonetary rewards--Jerald Greenberg, one of the pioneers in the field, brings the reader up-to-date on the state of the science. A variety of methods are utilized, including questionnaires, lab studies, and field experiments. Commentaries throughout the book provide interesting personal insight on the work not found elsewhere and a road map for the book as a whole.
