Know Your Rights

If you’re being sexually harassed at work, you don’t need to suffer in silence—or worry that you’ll face retaliation if you come forward. Workplace sexual harassment is illegal.

If you’re experiencing or have experienced sexual harassment, there are laws to protect you. Indian law protect employees from unwelcome sexual advances, unwanted sexual demands and propositions, and working in a sexually hostile work environment.

What the law says
1. Woman employee’s complaint of sexual harassment must be investigated by an internal committee
2. Internal committee, at the request of aggrieved woman, can take steps to settle the matter between her and respondent, through conciliation
3. If the complaint is found wrong, the complainant will be subject to disciplinary action
4. Internal committee must pay regard to the mental trauma suffered by aggrieved party, loss in career opportunity, medical bills for physical/psychiatric treatment, and decide compensation for them.
5. The employer must assist the complainant in seeking legal remedies or filing police complaint
6. The employer must treat sexual harassment as a misconduct and initiate action for misconduct
