Dunn, Deborah; Cody, Michael J.
Communication Monographs, v67 n4 p372-91 Dec 2000
Examines and challenges theories of account giving and public image following an accusation of sexual harassment in the workplace, using college students and working adults as subjects. Challenges the existing theories of account giving and public image, and lays to rest the notion that full apologies and excuses are mitigating in serious account episodes. (SG)
