Worker perceptions of organizational fairness are linked to a host of productive and counter-productive worker attitudes and behaviours (e.g. organizational commitment, absenteeism, theft, worker well-being), yet few studies have examined organizational fairness within the context of accommodating injured and ill workers. This plenary looks at recent research into the perceptions of fairness among both workers needing accommodation and their co-workers. It also explores the impact of these perceptions.
