Abstract:This study has investigated a theoretical and observed (or not observed) link between the glass ceiling literature and social justice theory, a link not previously established in the empirical literature. The study answers to the call for theory development and empirical work on race and ethnic differences as they relate to organizational behavior, with special attention to the effects of ethnicity and gender. As part of a growing body of research on ethnicity, this study has broadened our understanding of influences of perceived organizational treatment by providing a theoretical framework grounded in social justice theory. This study also provides guidelines to help managers better understand how to reduce Asian social workers' turnover and make decisions about outcomes and procedures for these employees.
