This paper investigates the mediating role of perceived supervisor support in the relationship between interactive justice and emotional commitment. At the same time, the study also looked at the relationship between interactional justice and emotional commitment, between interactional justice and perceived supervisor support, and between perceived supervisor support and emotional commitment. A survey research design was employed, using the convenience sampling technique with a sample population of 500 respondents drawn from Turkey and Nigeria. A structured questionnaire was used to gather information from the respondents through the usage of previous scales on interactive justice (IJ), emotional commitment (EM), and perceived supervisor support (PSS). The findings revealed a significant positive relationship between IJ and EM; IJ has a significant positive effect on PSS. It was revealed that the mediating role of PSS was insignificant on the IJ and EM. It was therefore concluded that IJ has a significant positive effect on EM, while PSS plays a mediating but insignificant role on both.
