Sexual Harassments

The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 is a legislative act in India that seeks to protect women from sexual harassment at their place of work. It was passed by the Lok Sabha (the lower house of the Indian Parliament) on 3 September 2012. It was passed by the Rajya Sabha (the upper house of the Indian Parliament) on 26 February 2013.[1] The Bill got the assent of the President on 23 April 2013.[2] The Act came into force from 9 December 2013.[3] This statute superseded the Vishakha Guidelines for prevention of sexual harassment introduced by the Supreme Court of India. It was reported by the International Labour Organization that very few Indian employers were compliant to this statute.[4][not in citation given][5] Most Indian employers have not implemented the law despite the legal requirement that any workplace with more than 10 employees need to implement it.[6] According to a FICCI-EY November 2015 report, 36% of Indian companies and 25% among MNCs are not compliant with the Sexual Harassment Act, 2013.[7] The government has threatened to take stern action against employers who fail to comply with this law.[8]
