Abstract:
This study examined people's attitudes regarding varying cases of sexual harassment in the workplace. The study attempted to determine if sexual harassment could be classified in a manner similar to drinking on the job and/or plagiarism of a colleague's work. The participants in this study (n = 252) voluntarily completed one version of the self-designed questionnaire, which consisted of four different versions. Each form contained directions, three hypothetical case scenarios, and request for demographic information. Following each scenario, participants responded to closed-ended questions about recommended consequences for, and seriousness of, the conduct described. Results, which were yielded through T-tests and chi-squares, demonstrated that certain cases of sexual harassment were viewed to be as serious, if not more so, than examples of intoxication and plagiarism. Further, findings indicated that implementation of similar consequences would be suitable for these inappropriate types of behavior at work.
