The quality of supervisory relationships at all levels of an organisation is related to the perceived quality of social conditions in such relationships. Certain employment relationship conditions are therefore desirable in all types of supervisory relationships and can therefore be viewed as categories in a typology. A panel survey and comprehensive literature review confirmed that trust, good faith, fairness and justice were desirable employment relationship conditions in supervisory relationships. These conditions were consequently regarded as related but distinct categories of a typology. General requirements for each condition were also identified and included in the typology. The validity of the typology was discussed and recommendations were made.
