Sexual harassment in casinos : Effects on employee attitudes and behaviors.
This study focuses on sexual harassment and job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and employee turnover among casino employees.
It is the first study investigating sexual harassment in the gaming industry.
Based on sex-role spillover theory it was expected that sexual harassment has less of an impact on casino employees than on employees in other industries.
Six Reno, Nevada casinos participated in the study and 330 responses were generated from casino employees.
The study results show that sexual harassment of and by casino employees is perceived to occur at about the same rate as in other industries.
Sexually harassed employees were compared to employees who indicated that they had not been sexually harassed.
Sexually harassed employees were less satisfied with their jobs and less committed to the organization.
However, they were not more likely to quit their jobs.
Sexually harassed employees tended to be younger, Caucasian, and in dealer positions.
Hence, in addition to the well-publicized cost of sexual harassment lawsuits, the study shows that sexual harassment in casinos may well be the source of hidden costs important to human resources managers.
A result of major interest was that employees who had been harassed held management responsible for not ensuring a work environment that is free of sexual harassment, Implications for casino management are discussed.
