Abstract: To provide better services, many public universities in Indonesia have implemented a new remuneration scheme under public service bodies (Badan Layanan Umum - BLU) management. This study assesses the perception of remuneration distributive and procedural justices and their effects on job satisfaction among staff of the state Islamic higher education institutions (Perguruan Tinggi Keagamaan Islam Negeri - PTKIN) in Indonesia. The study selected 262 staff from 13 PTKIN as the sample of study using a purposive sampling technique. The PTKIN's staff perceived that the distributive and procedural justice of the remuneration falls under the 'fair' and 'quite fair' categories, respectively. Besides, distributive justice and procedural justice are found to have a significant positive effect on job satisfaction. These findings suggest that the government should continuously improve the remuneration scheme based on the distributive and procedural justice principles to enhance the satisfaction of the staff of PTKIN in Indonesia.

Keywords: job satisfaction; distributive justice; procedural justice; state Islamic higher education institutions.
