KEYWORDS: Perception of Justice and Organisational Support Relationship: The Interactive Role of Perception of Organizational Politics

ABSTRACT:

Employees' perceptions of work environment are critical variables that affect individual and organisational outcomes. Three of these variables namely, perceptions of justice (distributive, procedural and interactional), organisational support and politics are highly correlated. Despite the variance they share in common, studies have shown that the variables possess discriminant validity. There are two problems identified in past studies involving these variables namely: they analyzed the relationships involving each or a combination of these variables, but never having all of them in the same model, despite the fact that they share much in common, and the existence of very few studies involving perception of organisational politics (OP). This study contributed to knowledge on relationships involving these variables, by testing the interactive role of perception of politics in justice- organisational support relationship. The results indicated support for the interactive role of OP. OP interacted with procedural and interactive justice to predict organisational support. The study recommended the inclusion of the three perceptions of work environment in same model, so as to obtain accurate relationship among them and important work outcomes
