Organizational justice is of great importance particularly for hospital personnel, and job stress has the potential to put their health at risk. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between organizational justice and job stress among the personnel of a hospital in Isfahan. In this correlation study, the samples consisted of 150 personnel that were working in a governmental hospital in Isfahan. Samples were selected through convenience sampling in 2012. Data were gathered by personal data questionnaire, Niehoff organizational justice questionnaire and job stress questionnaire. Data were analyzed by descriptive and analytical statistics. Results showed that job stress among hospital personnel varied from 48.6% (moderate) to 39.4% (mild) and 12% (severe). Moreover, findings showed there was a relationship between organizational justice in the domain of interactional justice and job stress among hospital personnel (r = - 0.18, P = 0.03). According to the findings, it is essential to pay attention to the concept of organizational justice in hospitals in order to decrease job stress among the personnel.
