The research presented in this thesis entitled "Organizational Justice and Health: Contextual Determinants and Psychobiological Consequences" aimed to investigate associations between organizational justice and employee health and biological functioning. Organizational justice is an occupational stressor that pertains to the perceived fairness at the workplace. It is a multidimensional concept that involves aspects like fairness of distribution of outcomes like salary, benefits and rewards, fairness of decision-making processes, and fairness experienced in interpersonal interactions. This thesis presents the development and validation of a German organizational justice scale and presents data showing that organizational justice is related to subjective health and well-being. Furthermore, the research in this thesis investigated the relation of organizational justice with other job stress conceptualizations, investigated biopsychosocial pathways that may link organizational justice to health, and presents data showing that organizational justice may affect occupational groups (i.e., blue- vs. white-collar workers) differently.
