Abstract: This study investigates the role of self-efficacy as a mediator in the association between distributive justice, procedural justice, and career satisfaction. By utilizing a simple random sampling technique, 440 responses were collected through a pre-tested questionnaire from employees of commercial banks in Bangladesh. The data analysis was conducted via the Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modelling (PLS-SEM) methodology, employing the Smart PLS 4.0.9.2v software as a tool. The researchers employed a quantitative research approach in order to evaluate the validity of the conceptual framework. The findings of the study indicate that there is a favourable impact of distributive justice and procedural justice on individuals' levels of career satisfaction. The findings of this study suggest that self-efficacy plays a mediating role in the association between distributive justice, procedural justice, and career satisfaction. This research has the potential to assist banks in enhancing their Human Resources (HR) policies, specifically in the areas of performance-based rewards, promotion criteria, and decision-making processes. By doing so, banks can ensure a greater degree of fairness and transparency, which in turn could contribute to increased employee satisfaction, engagement, and overall long-term success.
