Research questionnaires were: reward and encouragement of loyalty with 3 items, distributive justice with 6 items, procedural justice with 6 items, affective commitment with 5 items and job satisfaction with 4 items. Data were analyzed with the use of Pearson's correlation coefficient and structure equation modeling.ResultsResults showed that there are positive significant relations between reward andencouragement of loyalty (0.757 and 0.66 respectively) with distributive and procedural justice.

The study of second research hypothesis showed that distributive justice is a complete mediator variable in relation between reward and encouragement of loyalty with job satisfaction. Finally the results of third research hypothesis showed that procedural justice has not a mediator role in relation between reward and encouragement of loyalty with affective commitment.ConclusionThe results of this research revealed that for encouragement of attitudinal health in satisfaction and commitment domains, employee's loyalty must be rewarded in a just and equity manner.
