A study was conducted to gain a view on the issue of sexual harassment in a multinational company located in Kulim Hi - Tech Park, Kedah. The objective of the study is to investigate the relationship between organizational climate and sexual harassment and also to investigate the relationship between job gender and sexual harassment. A quantitative study using survey methodology was employed whereby modified questionnaires designed by the DEOC Task Force on Discrimination and Sexual Harassment, USA was randomly distributed to an engineering department in the
multinational company which consists of approximately 70 employees. The overall results show that organizational climate is positively related to sexual harassment while
job gender is negatively related to sexual harassment. Various suggestions were also made to improve the working environment of the Malaysian corporate world.
