Here’s the episode:

Whether it’s coping with unqualified people being promoted, working hard only to be rewarded with more hard work, supervisors getting away with being rude, or something else–we’ve all been there. Unfairness is common in life and at work, and our perceptions of fairness really matter. In this episode, we discuss: 

  • Different types of “justice” or fairness in organizations

  • Outcomes of fair and unfair treatment

  • Implications for people, leaders, and organizations
