This paper examines the contribution of perceived procedural and distributive justice to satisfaction with benefits. A study of 237 employees in two manufacturing organizations shows that procedural justice is generally a better predictor of benefits satisfaction than distributive. However, for employees in an open culture, distributive justice is a significant predictor of benefits satisfaction, especially in relation to satisfaction with benefits cost. The results indicate that it is important to consider culture's role in determining the importance of procedural or distributive justice.
