Research indicates that due process and equitable reward distributions may be more appropriate in influencing attitudes in individualistic rather than collectivistic cultures. Hence, we examined the effects of perceptions of due process in performance appraisal and equity in reward systems on employee commitment and tenure intent among collectivist Indian and individualistic Irish employees. The results indicated that both procedural and distributive justice perceptions predicted affective commitment, normative commitment, and tenure intent among Irish employees. However, in the Indian sample, procedural justice perceptions predicted affective commitment and tenure intent but distributive justice perceptions did not predict these outcomes; also distributive justice perceptions predicted normative commitment but procedural justice perceptions did not. Implications for global businesses are discussed.
