Introduction: Adams’ equity theory calls for a fair balance between an employee’s inputs and their outputs. This research aimed to assess the effect of managers' leadership styles on employees' equity feeling.

Methods: This casual-comparative study is carried out in the first half of 2006 at Mashhad University of Medical Sciences. 179 employees filled anonymously the questionnaires of equity feeling and leadership style. Independent Averages T-Test, one-way analysis of variance and Pearson's productmoment correlation have been used for data analysis.

Results: There was no significant relationship between employees’ equity feeling and leadership styles but there was a significant relationship between employees’ equity feeling and the amount of information they had about colleagues, salaries, and benefits. There was no difference between employees' equity felling according to their sex, academic degrees and job-tenure. 

Conclusion: Regardless of managers’ leadership style, in case staff are aware of one another income, they will be able to compare their inputs and outputs with each other. Therefore the equity feeling will increase based on which we can recommend managers to involve themselves in informing the staff of each others income in a right way. In addition, work place conditions, organizational respect, procedural justice and human dignity are such factors that affect staff equity felling.
