The relationship between employee empowerment and decision-making is an interesting one. By definition, they are directly related as decision-making is part of the many definitions and description of employee empowerment, such as:

"Employee empowerment is a strategy and philosophy that enables employees to make decisions about their jobs. Employee empowerment helps employees own their work and take responsibility for their results. Employee empowerment helps employees serve customers at the level of the organization where the customer interface exists" (http://humanresources.about.com/od/employeeempowerment/Employee_Empowerment_How_to_Empower_Employees.htm).

Another way of explaining employee empowerment in terms of decision-making power:

"Employee empowerment is a term used to express the ways in which non-managerial staff can make autonomous decisions without consulting a boss/manager. These self-willed decisions can be small or large depending upon the degree of power with which the company wishes to invest employees. Employee empowerment can begin with training and converting a whole company to an empowerment model. Conversely, it may merely mean giving employees the ability to make some decisions on their own" ...
