Abstract
This study is conducted to investigate the effect of perceived organizational justice on attitudes towards employees’ business ethics. In the study, the concepts of organizational justice and business ethics, which are perceived, are given theoretically. Later, in the context of justice and ethics, the relationship between organizational justice and business ethics is addressed on the basis of qualitative and quantitative studies. Field research is carried out on 346 personnel working at businesses operating in the private sector. Structural Equation Model (SEM) is used in the analysis of the data obtained from the research. As a result of the evaluation of the research data, it is found out that perceived distribution justice and perceived interactional justice don’t have a significant effect on the attitudes of employees towards business ethics. On the other hand, it is also found out that perceived procedural justice has a positive effect on employees’ attitudes towards business ethics.
