Abstract

Job performance is one of the most critical subjects in literature due to its crucial role in the success of organizations. The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of organizational justice on job performance among academic staff. The study employed a quantitative method to analyse the data collected at three Iraqi public universities located in Baghdad by using questionnaires. Stratified sampling technique was used to ensure the equal distribution of the samples among the three universities’ academic staff. Only 197 responses were valid to be analysed by using Smart PLS. The findings showed that distributive justice and interactional justice positively impacted on academic performance and ability to increase the performance, while procedural justice did not impact on academic performance. However, distributive justice had a higher impact on the job performance of academic staff compared to interactional justice. The findings of this study imply that decision-makers at universities should pay more attention to the fair distribution of resources, payment, promotion and training to increase job performance.

Keywords: Job performance, organizational justice, academic staff, distributive justice, procedural justice.
