This commentary elaborates on the paper by Barnett, Long, and Marler wherein they conceptualize the relationships between family involvement, family vision, exchange systems, and procedural justice climate among nonfamily managers. My elaboration places their conceptual model within the wider context of the affect theory of social exchange and offers two directions for extension based on social identity theory and a longitudinal perspective.
