Abstract: Sexual harassment is a hidden problem of any workplace, not only in Vietnam but also worldwide. Sexual harassment commonly happens in the service industry since the employees frequently contact different guests or partners. Understanding sexual harassment and the levels of perceptions in different genders in the service industry will help to justify the solutions for upcoming problems. Using the sexual experience questionnaire of 390 respondents in Vietnam, the article reveals that females more significantly perceive sexual harassment than males in terms of gender harassment and sexual coercion. In contrast, both genders generally tolerate unwanted sexual attention. The results support the previous research in the same area since females are still the primary victims of sexual harassment at work. The recommendations help each company focus more on the employees to prevent any negative impacts from sexual harassment and purify the entire service workspace.
