The purpose of this exploratory investigation is to identify the nature of the optimal interpersonal (relational) conditions under which sexual harassment in the hospitality industry is likely to occur, as well as the intrapersonal (psychological and emotional) and occupational ramifications of this phenomenon for both the harasser and the harassed. In addition, it attempts to develop specific strategies for minimizing the incidence of sexual harassment by offering both general awareness seminars and guest lectures to the public, as well as training sessions to both employees and employers. This research project relies mainly on the collection of data through the door-to-door administering of a questionnaire to a randomly selected sample of 650 employees as well as to the in-depth interviewing of 20 sexually harassed female employees in the hospitality industry.
