Today, researchers have been exploring employee’s resistance to change and how to foresee these aversive behaviors during organizational change process (Armenakis & Harris, 2002, Dent & Goldberg, 1999, Oreg & Sverdlik, 2011). Some employees view organizational change in a negative way even if change efforts will results in favorable consequences for them. At this point, communication process has a crucial effect on the perception of employees towards change process. In addition, several studies confirm the role of perceived justice in the organization during organizational change. So, the effects of communication and perception of justice on behaviors of employees during change process and the contribution of communication on resistance to change through perception of organizational justice was explored. The research was conducted among 583 employees in Turkey. The results of the regression analysis showed that perception of organizational justice plays a mediating role between communication to resistance and change.
