Social justice approach

Managers who take the social justice approach judge how consistent actions are with equity, fairness, and impartiality in the distribution of rewards and costs among individuals and groups. These ideas stem from two principles known as the liberty principle and the difference principle. The liberty principle states that individuals have certain basic liberties compatible with similar liberties of other people. The difference principle holds that social and economic inequities must be addressed to achieve a more suitable distribution of goods and services.
