To survive in this competitive era of modern business environment, organizations have to constantly develop, adapt and react to new challenges. Therefore, it is critical for organizations to create a sense of justice and involve their employees in business activities; thereby achieving the organization’s strategic goals. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the impact of organizational justice (OJ) on job turnover behavior of employees within the print media sector of Pakistan.


The study employs a quantitative methodology. It uses a sample of 402 employees from the newspaper industry to test hypotheses using regression analysis.


Results indicate that perceived distributive justice, procedural justice and informational justice have a negative relationship with turnover intentions of employees (as hypothesized) whereas; interpersonal justice did not result in a significant relationship.


The present study is one of the first within a Pakistani context in print media sector, aiming to examine the relationship of OJ (addressing all of its dimensions) and “intentions to leave the organization.”
