We present a next-to-leading order computation in QCD of one-jet and two-jet cross sections in polarized hadronic collisions. Our results are obtained in the framework of a general formalism that deals with soft and collinear singularities using the subtraction method. We construct a Monte Carlo programme that generates events at the partonic level. We use this code to give phenomenological predictions for pp collisions at E= 500 GeV, relevant for the spin physics programme at RHIC. The possibility of using jet data to constrain the poorly known polarized patton densities is examined.
