With a view to ensure safety for working women, The Sexual Harassment at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 to protect women from sexual harassment at their place of work was passed by the lower house of the Indian Parliament on 3 September 2012. But still there has been massive increment in the cases of sexual harassment cases against women. As per report of Government of India, between 2014 -2017 around 2 sexual harassment cases reported every day in the country.

Law of Sexual Harassment at workplaces

Be it Private organization, public sector companies, Government bodies OR corporate companies, if any employer having more than 10 employees in his organization, it is mandatory to constitute an INTERNAL COMMITTEE within the company to handle the sexual Harassment complaints. If this law is not complied by the organization, Penalty provision of cancellation of business license is there. As a Lawyer we suggest you to follow this law not because of penalty but Sexual Harassment free environment lead to good business growth.
