Sexual Harassment at the Workplace

When someone at a place of work behaves in a sexual way towards women and it is unwanted, offensive, threatening, or humiliating, it is seen as a form of harassment. Indian law protects women from both men and women who ask for or demand anything sexual at work. Employers must make sure their place of work is safe for women employees and must take claims of sexual harassment seriously.
