Based on its overall effectiveness the ethical leadership has opened new thinking avenues for the human resource managers during the past few decades. It has successfully drawn the  attention of local and global human resource managers as it is having meaningful influences on the organizational citizenship behavior. Ethical leaders are expected to make the most  appropriate use of organizational justice as a tool towards improving the employees’ job outcome. The current study was initiated with an objective to empirically investigate the relationship between ethical leadership and employee job outcome while considering the various determinants of organizational justice as mediating variable.
