This study aims to determine the relationships between organizational justice and affective and normative based outcome variables of education supervisors. Two alternative structural equation models were tested. The first model proposed burnout is the outcome of organizational justice and the antecedent of the variables of job satisfaction and organizational commitment. The second model proposed burnout is the outcome of the variables of organizational justice, job satisfaction, and organizational commitment. Although both the models had acceptable fit indices, the comparative fit indices showed the second model was more preferable. In this model, justice perceptions were found to have a positive effect on organizational commitment through the partial mediation effect of job satisfaction, and a negative effect on burnout through the full mediation effect of job satisfaction.
