The study adopted analytic descriptive survey design with quantitative methodology. Data were collected from university teaching hospitals in Nigeria through distribution and retrieval of 503 copies of questionnaire which was designed on a 5- point Likert scale response continuum of strongly agree to strongly disagree with corresponding weights from 5 to 1. Data were analysed with one way analysis of variance, Duncan post hoc test and multiple regression analysis. The findings of this study demonstrated that there was a significant difference in organizational justice perception among junior, senior and management staff in teaching hospitals; there was a significant difference in organizational justice perception among medical doctors, paramedics and supporting staff in teaching hospitals; distributive justice had non-significant positive effect on turnover intention among others. There is dearth of empirical literature in organizational justice and turnover intent in teaching hospitals in the Nigerian context. This research paper bridged the knowledge gaps, demonstrated policy inadequacies in the health sector and proffered possible way forward to mitigate the incidence of industrial unrest.
