We characterize the class of tiered exchange functions for an assignment problem. We examine a model with a finite number of indivisible goods to be assigned to a finite number of individuals with status quo endowments. However, these individuals can be partitioned into tiers, and new axioms of social justice are developed to account for this tiering.
