Abstract: Organisational justice is the perception of employees on the relationship between organisation's behaviour, decisions and actions, employee's behaviour and the attitude of employees at work. It is closely associated with the term fairness. Organisational justice comprises of three dimensions, namely, distributive, procedural and interactional justice. Organisational justice not only affects organisational performance, but also determines the economic and psychological wellbeing (PWB) of an employee. PWB refers to positive mental states, such as happiness or satisfaction. An individual's reactions to fairness in an organisation, is fundamental to human psychological and social interaction. Several researches have been made to understand the issue of fairness in the workplace and to investigate the factors affecting the PWB. However, one of the factors which seems to affect the PWB in a larger way is organisational justice which has received little attention so far. The current research aims to study the influence of organisational justice on employees' PWB.

Keywords: organisational justice; relationship; fairness; distributive justice; psychological wellbeing; PWB; procedural justice; interactional justice.
