Summary

This study examines organizational justice climate as a predictor of sexual harassment and the moderating roles of individual- and unit-level sex similarity and sexual harassment climate. Findings indicate a negative relationship between psychological and collective justice climates and sexual harassment, mitigated by sex similarity and sexual harassment climate. The article concludes that organizations can promote a justice climate as an additional way to help prevent sexual harassment.

Keywords sexual harassment, organizational justice climate, sex similarity, climate for sexual harassment
