Organisational Justice: Migrant Worker Perceptions in Organisations in the United Arab Emirates

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A justice framework can be used to understand how individuals within organisations respond to a variety
of human resource practices and also can be used prescriptively in designing the procedures and
enactment of human resource practices. The principles of justice can be applied in order to understand the
consequences of any human resource practice. This paper examines the impact of the perception of
organisational justice on job satisfaction of unskilled workers in the city of Dubai in the United Arab
Emirates (UAE). The key findings of the research revealed Dubai as having the largest proportion of
expatriate workers globally and that these employees present a high level of grievance towards their
employers. Major issues highlighted by the survey include pay, workload, job responsibilities, bias, and
employer injustice.
