Should I Stay or Should I Leave? Perceptions of Age Discrimination, Organizational Justice, and Employee Attitudes on Intentions to Leave by ProQuest


The present study tested the relationship among demographic and work characteristics, perceived age discrimination, organizational justice, job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and turnover intention. A sample of 251 engineers associated with the Florida Engineering Society completed an online survey. Findings indicated that age was a significant predictor of age discrimination and that both variables revealed a curvilinear relationship. Younger engineers perceived significantly more age discrimination than their older counterparts. A variety of demographic and work characteristics were found to be significant predictors of the dependent variables, including intentions to leave. Limitations, practical implications, conclusions, and recommendations for future research are also discussed. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
