AbstractThis paper compares the sexual harassment policies of various companies in corporate America, mainly from the biomedical and the aerospace industry. This comparison is made by analyzing the avenues that employees have within a company to bring forth their concerns, the presence or absence of a sexual harassment policy within the company, the company's method of informing their employees of their policy (if it exists), and the overall suggested outcomes from a scenario that focused on a subtle case of sexual harassment. In general, it was found that the biomedical and aerospace companies have a similar range of types of harassment policies. However, each industry presents attitudes and opinions that were not apparent in the opposite industry. These similarities and differences are brought to light and expanded upon in this paper.
