Guideline for Preventing Sexual Harassment at the Work Place

Sexual harassment at the workplace is a prevalent practice that jeopardizes the well being of employees, reduced the quality of work life and undermines gender equality in organisations. It breaches national legislations and international conventions and destroys the sanctity and safety of a conducive work environment for men and women and in turn becomes detrimental for the growth of any organisation.

EEPC India has come out with a detailed guideline on Sexual Harassment at Workplace. This guide for employers on “Guidelines for Preventing Sexual Harassment” is an effort of EEPC India to provide employers with a practical tool towards creating a sexual harassment free workplace. This is also in line with the legislative act – Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal Act 2013) which seeks to provide women from sexual harassment at their place of work.

As an employer, EEPC India has the responsibility to maintain a workplace that is free of any gender based harassment. This also makes good business sense because it allows high employee morale and high productivity.

We are sure this document will prove to be immensely useful to enterprises in strengthening its existing systems to check the problem of sexual harassment at workplace. It will also be a value added service to the members of EEPC India.
