Sexual harassment of women at workplace - A legal analysis
Abstract: Complaints of sexual abuse at the workplace are often ignored as minor misconduct rather than being reported as serious crimes that carry a penalty. The incidence of sexual harassment at workplace is increasing day by day. Harassment affects all women in some form or the other. Women are vulnerable to sexual harassment because they more often lack power and work in insecure positions. Often women aren't aware of the legal recourse at their disposal. Due to the fear factor women often resign to their fate rather than raise voice against sexual harassment.
