The effect of procedural fairness and supervisor support in the relationship between job insecurity and organizational citizenship behavior

Sergio Andrés López Bohle, Antonio Ramón Mladinic Alonso

Abstract


Purpose – The aim of this paper is to examine whether the perception
of job insecurity negatively affects procedural fairness, which may relate
to the Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB). Finally, we have
tested whether perceived supervisor support has a moderating effect
in the relationship between procedural fairness and OCB.


Design/methodology/approach – Data were collected from a sample
of 707 employees in a metal-mechanic company in Chile. Regression
analysis was used to analyze the mediating and moderating effects.


Findings – It was found that procedural fairness fully mediates the
relationship between Job Insecurity and OCB, such that Job Insecurity
is negatively related to procedural fairness, which in turn is positively
related to OCB. Also, perceived supervisor support moderates the
relationship between procedural fairness and OCB.


Originality/value – The paper provides new theoretical insights
on the effects that perceived job insecurity has on OCB, giving an
empirical insight of the mediator and moderator effects that aid in the
comprehension of this relationship.
