Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the question whether equity sensitivity has a moderating effect on the relationship between self-efficacy and the three dimensions of burnout: emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal achievement. A total of 271 secondary school teachers (65% male and 35% female) participated in this study. Three questionnaires dealing with burnout, self-efficacy, and equity sensitivity were administered. The findings show that equity sensitivity has a significant though small moderating effect on the relationship between perceived self-efficacy and two dimensions of burnout, i.e. emotional exhaustion and personal accomplishment. No evidence was found for the moderating effect of equity sensitivity on the relationship between self-efficacy and depersonalization. Implications of the study's findings are discussed.
