Abstract

This paper aims at (1) investigating the relationship between Organisational Justice and three dimensions of employees’ performance namely; In-role performance, Citizenship Work Behaviours and Counterproductive Work Behaviours within the Egyptian Context, (2) investigating the moderating effect of Social Comparison Orientation on the Organisational Justice-Performance relationship with regard to the three dimensions of performance. The theoretical foundations of the proposed relationships were discussed. Using a structured questionnaire to assess research variables, a quota sampling procedure was used to recruit a sample (N= 298) from managers working in public and private organisations in the greater Cairo Area. The three parts questionnaire was tested for validity and reliability. The proposed relations were tested using Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression analysis with the interaction effect between the standardized scores (Z). Results supported the significant relationship between Organisational Justice and In-role performance, Citizenship Work Behaviours and Counterproductive Work Behaviours. Results also supported the moderation role of Social Comparison Orientation. Theoretical and practical implications and future research were addressed.
