This study examined the relationships among perceptions of organizational politics (POP), work engagement, organizational justice, and perceived organizational support. Using Prolific, data were collected from 303 full time workers across different industries in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom. A regression analysis was carried out to test the effects of POP on work engagement, as well as the moderating and mediating roles of perceived organizational support and organizational justice, respectively. Results showed that that there was no direct effect between POP and work engagement, nor indirect effect of POP through procedural justice on work engagement. However, perceptions of organizational politics had a strong significant relationship with procedural justice, and procedural justice had a small significant relationship with work engagement. Perceived organizational support was not found to be a significant moderator in the relationship between POP and work engagement.
