FULL DAY INTERACTIVE WORKSHOP
Discussion on Grey Areas: The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 is a great piece of legislation with great intention but like all other laws, this law also suffers from several practical challenges.
Some of the teaser questions for you to think: What happens when a complaint is oral but redressal is sought? What happens when the employer threatens you to give recommendations in favour of the harasser in spite of clear evidence against him? Can a complaint by an employee of a relationship (any physical display of affection) between two other employees be treated as a complaint of sexual harassment? Does the law apply to the management of a temple? What does legal assistance entail? Are students employees when it comes to application of the law to schools and colleges? Are internal complaints committee members protected under the Law?
Other than the above, the bonus is, you get to meet new people and connect with the like-minded lot!
