Sexual Harassment -Punishable by Law


Sexual harassment is punishable by law in India. The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 is a legal framework in India that defines sexual harassment at the workplace and provides a mechanism for the redressal of complaints related to sexual harassment.

Under this act, sexual harassment is a punishable offense and can result in fines, imprisonment or both. Additionally, the act mandates that employers establish an internal complaints committee to address complaints of sexual harassment and take appropriate action against the offender.

In addition to the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act, there are other laws and provisions in India that address sexual harassment, including the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.

It is important for individuals to be aware of their rights and take action if they experience or witness sexual harassment. By holding perpetrators accountable and creating a safe and respectful environment, we can work towards a more equal and just society.
