Roundtable – The Sexual Harassment at the Workplace Act 2013

In April, India’s president gave assent to the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act: the country’s first piece of legislation dedicated to sexual harassment at work, which was passed by the Rajya Sabha, the upper house of India’s parliament, in February.
