This study examined the moderating role of leader ingroup prototypicality in the relationship between the perceived procedural justice of the ingroup leader and the status judgements (pride and respect) that ingroup members make. Given the premises of the group-value model and social identity approach, it was hypothesized that the effect of perceived justice on status judgements would be stronger when the leader is perceived as a prototypical group member than when she/he is not. The hypothesis was tested on a sample of 364 employees of two banking organizations. The results offered strong support for the hypothesis. Implications for further research are discussed.
