MONTANEZ-JUAN, María Isabel et al. Work Design and Job Satisfaction: the moderating role of organizational justice. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.4, pp. 853-858. ISSN 1984-6657.

The economic crisis has entailed a general increase in job demands and reduction in compensating factors, modifying the fairness of the employment relationship. In this longitudinal study, we analyze the effects of the moderating role of organizational justice on the job characteristics - job satisfaction relationship. A total of 593 employees working for 42 Spanish companies answered the questionnaires at two points in time. Results showed that the job and the social characteristics, as well as distributive justice, in time 1 predict job satisfaction in time 2. Additionally, interactional justice moderated the relationship between job characteristics and job satisfaction. In conclusion, work design, as well as fair interactions at work, may increase job satisfaction.

Keywords : work design; organizational justice; job satisfaction.
