Organizational Justice and Men's Likelihood to Sexually Harass: The Moderating Role of Sexism and Personality
Krings, Franciska; Facchin, Stephanie
Journal of Applied Psychology, v94 n2 p501-510 Mar 2009
This study demonstrated relations between men's perceptions of organizational justice and increased sexual harassment proclivities. Respondents reported higher likelihood to sexually harass under conditions of low interactional justice, suggesting that sexual harassment likelihood may increase as a response to perceived injustice. Moreover, the relation between justice and sexual harassment proclivities was especially marked for men low in agreeableness and high in hostile sexism. This finding is consistent with an interactionist perspective, suggesting that individual differences in hostility in general and toward women in particular affect how a person reacts to perceived unfairness.
