The term organizational justice is used in this study the degree to which employees perception about the overall organizational procedures, rules, and policies which are connected to their job should be fair while Job satisfaction means how employees has perception about their job positively or negatively (Mohyeldin & Tahire, 2007). Employees were more satisfied when they felt they were fairly rewarded fairly for the work they have made and these reward are according to their contributions for organization and in harmony with reward policies of organization (Al-Zubi, 2010).

Satisfaction has a significant role in the productivity of employees ultimately plays a crucial role in the progress of an organization.
