The study of fairness in organisations, and in panicufar, procedural fairness, has given researchers fresh insights about management. In business organisations, considerations of fairness appeal to managers, employees, and other organisational stakeholders who see fairness as a unifying value, providing fundamental principle that can bind together conflicting parties and create stable social structures. This paper attempts to explore the relationship between managers' practice of procedural justice and employees' job commitment in the nationalised commercial banks ( NCBs) of Bangladesh and analyse the predictability of the different components of procedural justice in explaining perceived job commitment. Several diagnostic techniques such as factor analysis, bivariate correlations and regression hm•e been used in this study. Two components of procedural fairness - communication fairness and follow-up fairness - have been found to have significant effects in explaining employees' job commitment in the NCBs of Bangladesh.
