Forum on Public Policy Online, v2014 n1 2014
This article shows the perspective of this research and the result of the complete count survey performed from October to November in 2013 to examine the attitude toward the prevention and the resolution of the workplace harassment at the Japanese universities. The questionnaire was distributed to 1131 universities, two years colleges, and postgraduate schools in Japan to collect the guidelines related to workplace harassment. The number of the respondents was 394. The response rate was 34.8%. The number of the documents collected was 168 of the total respondents, that is 42.6% of the total respondents and 6.7% of the 1131 schools. The total number of the documents related to the harassment prevention was 347. Only the half of the respondents answered that they have the guidelines for harassment prevention and 40% of the respondents answered that they do not have the guidelines. It is expected that the Japanese universities should pay more attention to the harassment prevention.
