The Relationship between Leader-Member Exchange and Organizational Justice: Empirical Evidence from Bahrain

Minwir Al-Shammari, Elham Hasan Ebrahim


This research examines the relationship between individuals' quality of leader-follower exchange (LMX) and organizational justice (OJ) in Bahraini workgroups. A survey was developed and used. 173 surveys were collected through purposive non-probability sampling method. Correlation analysis was conducted to achieve the research objectives. At the individual-level of analysis positive significant relationships were identified between LMX and OJ dimensions. At the group-level those positive significant relationships continued to exist, i.e., LMX Level and OJ Climates. However, at that level, it was revealed that when LMX was measured as a dispersion construct, i.e., LMX Differentiation, those relationships with OJ Climates did not hold anymore. Additionally, workgroup heterogeneity was not related to LMX Differentiation and OJ Climates, neither it did moderate the relationships between them.
