Sexual Harassment against Women in the Workplace: An Exploratory Study in the Banking Sector in Saudi Arabia

Auther : Nawal A. Alshehri
Waheed A. Alhindi

This study aimed to identify the current status of sexual harassment in the workplace in the banking sector by identifying: (1) the forms and causes of it in mixed work environment, (2) the procedures women should follow in case they were harassed, (3) the impact of the sexual harassment on women, and (4) the actions taken by the organization's administration against the harasser when receiving harassment report. The descriptive analytical method was used by designing a questionnaire distributed to a sample of (206) women working in the banking sector. The findings include the following: (88.8%) of the sample agreed that the silence of woman who had been harassed was the main reason that would make them target of harasser; (91.2%) of the sample agreed that repelling the harasser immediately was the behavior that would be taken by women if they happened to be in such a case; and (69.9%) of the sample agreed that feeling down and depressed was the most prominent effect of the harassment. The study also reported a lack of clarity about the procedures followed by the administration in the case of sexual harassment in the workplace.
