Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The goal of this activity is to equip students with skill sets for overcoming unfair experiences at work, drawing on interactional justice theory that is developing in organizational communication. Students reflect on their interactional injustice experiences and then proceed to generate response strategies to cope with such injustices. In doing so, students can theoretically discuss workplace (in)justices and develop communicative practices to respond to those injustices. Courses: Small-group,business and professional, and organizational communication. Objectives: By the end of this activity, students will (1) demonstrate a clear understanding of the construct of interactional justice that includes interpersonal and informational justice; (2) critically revisit their interactional injustices experiences in the workplace; and (3) develop and practice skill sets to navigate interactional injustices at work.
