Introduction: Job burnout can have negative effects on organizations and their employees. This study tried to investigate the relationships between job burnout and occupational stress, the four dimensions of organizational justice, personality characteristics, role clarity, and role overload.

Material and Methods: All full-time employees of the Regional Electric Company of Kerman (n = 200) were selected as the study sample. Finally, 138 usable questionnaires were collected. Previously designed questionnaires were used to measure work overload, occupational stress, role calrity, and organizational justice and respect. Maslach Burnout Inventory and NEO were also administered. Pearson’s correlation and multiple regression analyses were applied to analyze the data. All analyses were performed using SPSS 16.0.

Results: Job burnout was significantly related with occupational stress, distributive justice, extraversion, role clarity, role overload, organizational respect. Multiple regression analysis suggested distributive justice, overload, procedural justice, and occupational stress as the best predictors of job burnout. These factors explained 48% of the variance in burnout.

Conclusion: According to the results of this study, policymakers and planners of the organization are recommended to pay more attention to parameters contributing to job burnout. This will prevent job burnout among the personnel and promote organizational efficiency.
