Harassment at the workplace is not a new trend and physical touch is not the only form of sexual harassment people encounter at the workplace.


Harassment at the workplace is not a new trend and physical touch is not the only form of sexual harassment people encounter at the workplace.Harassment at the workplace is not a new trend. I keep hearing of such cases now and then. Physical touch is not the only form of sexual harassment people encounter at the workplace. Sexual advances, abusive language also constitute sexual harassment in the workplace.

I haven’t heard of too many cases where employees from the organised sector have been asked for sexual favours. It is not a common occurrence, but one hears of such cases during the appraisal period. Today, most organisations have a strict and specific policy to deal with sexual harassment.

There are companies ensuring that women get equal opportunities and respect at the workplace.

What’s more, women themselves are fighting discrimination at work. There have been many instances when women have had to face unfair treatment as compared to their male counterparts.
