Perceived discrimination against immigrants in the workplace

Influence of personal values and organizational justice


The purpose of this paper was to examine how perceptions of organizational justice and social-focussed personal values influence perceived discrimination against immigrants in the workplace. A sample of 224 employees of mental health clinic in Norway completed Schwartz's Portrait Values Questionnaire that measures personal values, Colquitt's Organizational Justice Scale, and a scale measuring discrimination against immigrants in the workplace. Perceived organizational justice and the social-focussed value universalism contributed significantly in explaining variance in perceived discrimination against immigrants.
