Abstract : Focusing on 98 Air Force units, this study examines the relationship between sexual harassment, retention, unit cohesion, commitment, and unit effectiveness. Data for the analysis were drawn from the 2009 Defense Equal Opportunity Climate Surveys (DEOCS). The data were grouped by units according to AFECOID (a unit designator), and the effects of sexual harassment on job satisfaction, retention, unit effectiveness, and unit cohesion were examined. Among the findings, sexual harassment has a strong significant negative effect on perceived unit effectiveness and percent retention (at the .01 level), and a significant effect on unit cohesion (at the.05 level), but no significant effect on job satisfaction or unit commitment.
