PATLAN PEREZ, Juana; FLORES HERRERA, Rosa; MARTINEZ TORRES, Edgar  and  HERNANDEZ HERNANDEZ, Rosalía. Validity and adaptation of organizational justice scale Niehoff and Moorman in the Mexican population. Contad. Adm [online]. 2014, vol.59, n.2, pp.97-120. ISSN 0186-1042.

The objective of this research was to perform the adaptation to Spanish of the organizational justice scale of Niehoff and Moorman (1993) focused on measuring three factors of justice: distributive, procedural and interactional. The method used to adaptation the scale consisted of eight stages: translation of the items by reverse translation method, validation by judges, scale integration, application of the scale to a sample of 1296 workers (45.4% female and 54.6% male), items analysis, reliability analysis, construct validity using confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation analysis, and integration of the adapted version of the scale. The results confirm the three-dimensional factor structure of the scale: distributive justice, procedural and interactional, with high internal consistency which ensures the psychometric quality of the scale.

Keywords : organizational justice; distributive justice; procedural justice; interactional justice; fairness.
