dc.description.abstract Little research has linked the broad constructs of justice, commitment, and health in an integrated framework. To begin to address this gap, I drew on the target similarity model (Lavelle, Rupp, & Brockner, 2007) to integrate multi-foci justice and multi-foci commitment. In response to calls for incorporating positive psychological constructs into research (Seligman & Csikszentmihalyi, 2000), I also included a measure of positive affective well-being. I used Structural Equation Modeling to analyze survey data (N = 305) from a military sample. CFA results supported a six factor model of justice (distributive, procedural, supervisor interpersonal, supervisor informational, coworker interpersonal, and coworker informational) and a three factor model of commitment (organizational, supervisor, and coworker). Results also provided partial support for the multi-foci framework. Distributive and procedural justice predicted organizational commitment; supervisor informational justice predicted supervisor commitment; and coworker interpersonal and informational justice predicted coworker commitment. Organizational affective commitment mediated the relationships between distributive and procedural justice and positive affective well-being. Direct links were also found between distributive and supervisor informational justice and positive affective well-being. Limitations and implications of this research are discussed. en_CA
