International Journal of Academic Research in Accounting, Finance and Management Sciences, 2016, vol. 6, issue 2, 61-75

Abstract: Justice in an organization is related with several favorable outcomes at both individual and organizational levels. Employees with a perception of fairness in the workplace are likely to engage in more innovative behaviors. Innovation is considered as the key concept for organizational survival and success, and employees’ innovative behaviors may be the most important resource in this regard. In order for an organization to adopt an innovative climate, a learning capacity is required since information is essential to innovation. Therefore, the purpose of the present study is to determine whether distributive justice is related with innovative behaviors of employees and whether organizational learning capacity plays a mediating role in such relationship. The study data were obtained using questionnaires and analyzed in SPSS and AMOS software programs. The study results demonstrated a significantly positive relationship between distributive justice and innovative behavior as well as a mediating effect of organizational learning capacity on this relationship.
