OCB here is conceptualized as a term that encompasses any positive and constructive action that employees engage in, on their own volition which supports co-workers and benefits the organization. This study adopted the survey research design. The population of the study consisted of 150 Adhoc teaching staff of the Polytechnic, out of which 120 was conveniently sampled. Data was collected through questionnaires. To determine its reliability, Cronbach-alpha was used (organizational citizenship behaviour 0.81 and 0.83 for organizational justice.) The collected data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The results showed that mean of OCB are slightly above average. And there is significant positive relationship between the components of organizational justice and OCB. Furthermore, the three dimensions of organizational justice (distributive, procedural and interactional) indicated a positive relationship with the two main dimensions of OCB, namely OCB-interpersonal and OCB-organisational.
