We conducted a survey to examine the impact of distributive and procedural justice on the reactions of 217 employees to decisions about pay raises. Distributive justice accounted for more unique variance in satisfaction with pay than did procedural justice, but procedural justice accounted for more unique variance in two other measures of attitudes about the employing institution and its authorities, trust in supervisor and organizational commitment. We discuss what our results imply about the nature of justice in organizations and the distributive- procedural distinction.
