Mohesn Golparvar, Zahra Javadian
Perceived organizational justice is an important factor for prediction of various aspects of OCBs. This research investigates the extent to which equity sensitivity moderates the relationship between perceived organizational justice and OCBs. It was hypothesized that distributive, procedural, informational and interpersonal justice are related to OCBs (helping behavior, civic virtue, and sportsmanship) and equity sensitivity has been moderate these relationships. Research sample group were 123 employees of a petrochemical company in Iran. The moderated hierarchical regression analysis indicated that equity sensitivity moderates the relationship between perceived distributive organizational justice with civic virtue and sportsmanship. That is, in entitled group (and no in equity sensitive or benevolent groups) distributive justice positively and significantly related to civic virtue and sportsmanship (P< 0.05). Also results indicated that equity sensitivity moderates the relationship between perceived procedural organizational justice and sportsmanship. That is, in an equity sensitive group (and no in entitled or benevolent groups) procedural justice positively and significantly related to sportsmanship (P< 0.05).
