Abstract

Argues that, as problems with sexual harassment in the workplace become more apparent, the development of a commonly accepted, behavioural‐based definition of the construct becomes crucial to our understanding of the phenomenon. Attempts to add to the development of this definition by assessing 840 female office professionals’ perceptions of the behaviours that create a hostile work environment and assessing differences in perceptions which might be related to demographics. Contrary to previous research, indicates that demographics do not explain differences in perceptions of female office professionals. Makes suggestions for future researchers and practitioners.
