Abstract: In considering the deontic perspective of justice, research has called for the study of individual difference variables that explain differential reactions to unfair treatment. This is specifically due to the emerging literature on moral self-regulation as a determinant of workplace behaviors for some individuals, but not others (Rupp & Bell, 2010). In this paper, I consider how first and third-party injustice interacts with honesty-humility in predicting positive and negative behaviors. I manipulated first- (Study 1, N=552 participants) and third- (Study 2, N=606) party justice via laboratory experiments examining both counterproductive and retaliatory as well as citizenship and performance behavioral intentions. Support for the main effect of honesty-humility on revenge and reconciliation as well as the moderating role of honesty-humility on the relationship between first- and third-party unfairness and both prosocial and aggressive behaviors was found, controlling for the already established effects of gender, negative affect, conscientiousness, and agreeableness.
