MetadataShow full item record
This research estimates the organizational costs of sexual-assault incidents involving active-duty members of the U.S. military in FY 2012. The study builds on previous work by Robert H. Faley, in which he and his colleagues presented a model for estimating the organizational annual cost of sexual harassment. In this study, I develop a comprehensive framework of all organizational costs related to sexual assaults in the military workplace. Using behavioral-costing methodology, I quantify organizational cost estimates for twenty-four cost components, some of which were ignored by previous studies. The goal of this research was to arm leadership and decision makers with critical information about the organizational costs of sexual assault, to use in the battle to eradicate sexual assault from the U.S. armed forces.
