ORGANIZATIONAL JUSTICE IN INDIAN UNIVERSITIES: EXPLORING MEDIATION AND MODERATION EFFECTS
The study is intended to explore indirect effects of organizational justice across industries and to identify the possibility of its application in Indian universities. Existing work falls in the category of exploratory research based on literature review adopted from Tranfield et al. (2003). Relevant highly cited literature has been downloaded from database of Google Scholar, Web of Science and Elsevier etc. The study found that although organizational justice has good number of antecedents and outcomes, and its direct effects has been studied by different scholars across industries. But moderating and mediating role searched across industries are very minimal and in higher education institutions is completely silent. Accordingly, the scholar has identified important dimensions of organizational behavior and human resources like as HR practices, leadership style, organizational politics, and job insecurity etc., as an independent factors whereas institutional as well as employee outcomes as dependent factors of testing mediating and moderating effects of organizational justice for Indian higher educational institutions. Institutions of higher learning can be hub of knowledge creation, so that they can provide community-driven multi-disciplinary approach to problem solving only through establishing baseline of organizational justice to different stakeholders.
