Descrption
The second edition of this comprehensive work critically examines the Supreme Court's directives in Vishaka, (1997)6 SCC'241 regarding sexual harassment at workplace, and goes on to discuss the development of the law since then.
Sexual harassment at work is a serious problem for working women in a large number of occupations and employments. After almost 16 years of the landmark judgment of Supreme Court in Vishaka, (1997) 6 SCC 241, India finally enacted Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013.
The learned author with his vast practical experience and academic credentials has produced this exhaustive guide, for the employers, the working women and for all sections of the society. The book is divided into four Parts:
Part I of the book thoroughly explains what constitutes sexual harassment and its diverse forms.
Part II emphasises upon the need for combating sexual harassment.
Part III is sub divided into III-A and III-B. Sub-part III-A deals with "preventative and procedural action by employers", "sexual harassment of students", as also the "role of employees, trade unions and collective bargaining". Sub-part III-B examines and discusses the provisions of the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013.
Part IV reviews the aspect of "Liability and Remedies". It mainly discusses the applicability, etc., of laws other than the 2013 Act, such as the Constitution, Labour Laws, Criminal Laws, the National Commission for Women Act, 1990, Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993 and Tort Law. It also discusses the circumstances under which an employer may be held vicariously liable for the sexual torts of its employees.
