  • Six Rules For Procedural Justice Consistency Rule
    456 words
    Developing a procedurally Just performance appraisal process When organizations make decisions about people, such as whom to hire or promote, appraisal ratings or merit raise to give, or how important that the decisions are seen as fair and just. Research has shown that at least two aspects of justice influence employees job satisfaction and organizational commitment and both must be considered in organization decisions.

  • Concepts Of Justice And Fairness
    344 words
    Originally published in Philosophical Review Vol. LXVII. 1958. - Steve Bayne (Hist-Analytic. org JUSTICE AS FAIRNESS By JOHN RAWLS (1958) 1. It might seem at first sight that the concepts of justice and fairness are the same, and that there is no reason to distinguish them, or to say that one is more fundamental than the other. I think this impression is mistaken. In this paper I wish to show that the fundamental idea in the concept of justice is fairness; and I wish to offer an analysis of the ...
  • Trial Of Orestes
    769 words
    The People vs. Orestes In the last portion of 'The Orestia'; , titled 'The Euminides'; , Aeschlyus describes the trial of Orestes, who is brought in front of a jury on the charge of matricide. The jury hands in a tied verdict and the goddess Athena casts the deciding vote in favor of Orestes. This of course begs the question: Was Athena's decision fair? I believe that this decision was in the best interest of fairness because Orestes was motivated by Apollo, enraged by the murder of his father, ...
  • Fairness And Justice
    763 words
    Justice & Fairness When a person commits a crime, many people call for him to be brought to justice. To many people, it means punishment. If a person commits murder, some say he should be brought to justice by having to serve a long prison sentence or even face the death penalty. Probably the best definition of justice is fair treatment of people. It is primarily used in law, but it can also be applied to situations such as in the workplace or in a school. True justice means that everyone is tre...
  • Seeking Of Justice
    669 words
    Justice Justice, as defined by Webster's Dictionary is the quality of being fair or just. This implies that justice would have something to do with being fair. I thought that if one of the things the law and legal system are about is maintaining and promoting justice and a sense of fairness, they might not be doing such a great job. An eye for an eye is fair? No, that would be too easy, too black and white. I could cite several examples where I thought a judge's or jury's ruling was unfair, howe...
  • Fairness And Restitution
    438 words
    What is Justice? The powers that be, including, politicians, police, clergymen etc. would have us believe that Justice is found in our laws. We should all believe that a judge and jury are the perfect tool to illuminate what is fair in every situation. And because of that we should all obey the laws of society and leave the enforcing of those laws up to the court system. Well I have seen the lie in this philosophy too many times to accept it as truth. Justice can be defined in many ways. The sim...
  • Word Justice
    632 words
    In my mind justice is a very abstract concept. Although it seems like everyone knows the meaning of the word many people view justice differently. If you would ask people what they associate the word justice with, you would hear many opinions. To me it means fairness, accountability, equality, punishment, following the letter of the law, and these are the words that came to my mind on the spot, but the list sure doesn t end here. What may seem just to one person may be considered totally unjust ...
  • Bad Things Happen To Good People
    1,487 words
    A phrase I often hear is, "It's not fair". It's common among children when a sibling gets something, or is allowed to do something, that they themselves are denied. But it can also be heard here at work from employees. It could be they didn't feel they got fair treatment about a job assignment, award or promotion. Whenever you have a group of people, it's a challenge to convince them all that they " re being treated fairly. When life is not fair, sometime it's to your advantage. Michael Dorris' ...
