This book proposes the application of the theoretical framework of current organizational justice theory to selection fairness research. Such an application aims to help fostering the understanding of selection fairness issues from both a procedural and a distributive justice perspective, readily distinguishable from the traditional psychometric and utility emphases. The author aims to identify areas of selection research where such an application would be most fruitful. It is argued that procedural justice notions could be applied to selection research into the identification of fairness determinants of selection procedures. The consequence of fairness perceptions about selection procedures in terms of successful candidates' post-entry job attitude and behaviour is explored in this theoretical context. The author also proposes the application of distributive justice notions to diversity-based - gender or ethnicity - selection. Empirical studies are discussed in detail to illustrate these proposed applications. The author identifies other areas of selection research to which various justice notions can be applied.
