Employees’ psychological capital has significant influences on his/her behavior in professional and personal life. Employees’ perception about fairness in the organization tends to give rise to various favorable and unfavorable work outcomes. Job satisfaction is an example of such attitudinal variables which have is deeply affected by Organizational Justice Perceptions. Current literature of organizational Justice does not fully explain the mechanism governing the influence of organizational justice on job. This study tries to explain the relationship between organizational justice perceptions, job satisfaction, and Psychological Capital. The main objective of this study was to test the influence of organizational justice on job satisfaction, Psychological Capital. A survey-based methodology, with standardized scales was used. A sample of 218 employees from the Indian Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) was drawn The result obtained from Pearson correlation and stepwise multiple regressions suggest that Distributive Justice is found out to be the strongest predictor of organizational justice perceptions, job satisfaction, and Psychological Capital. It means that if people have favorable distributive justice perceptions, they are also likely to have positive organizational justice perceptions, job satisfaction, and Psychological Capital that has provided the favorable outcomes. Stepwise multiple regressions clearly indicate that various dimensions of Organizational Justice (Distributive, Procedural and Interactional Justice) can significantly predict the dimensions of Job Satisfaction (42.6%), and Psychological Capital (19.7%). The theoretical framework proposed in the paper on job satisfaction, and Psychological Capital; would help the researchers and management people to understand the impact of Perceptions about Organizational Justice in better efficiency of the organization.
