The sexual misconduct in this paper refers to behaviors of sexual harassment at whereby only in the late 1990s has it been transformed from a mostly unexplored private ill to a public and social problem. Harassment of employees on any basis undermines morale, interferes with working relationships and undercuts employees’ ability to work effectively, However, one major problem in dealing with sexual harassment in organizations is its perceptual nature because men and women generally differ in what they perceive to be sexual harassment. Hence the purpose of this paper is to create awareness by providing an overview of this complex issue by bringing forward the various perceptions on the definitions of sexual harassment, pervasiveness of the misbehavior, explicating the gender context within which it occurs and its effects on the workers at the workplace. Finally the paper concludes by giving a guideline on combating such misconducts towards creating an ethical workplace.
