Protecting women in the workplace


Dear Editor,

India’s law on the prevention and prohibition of sexual harassment against women at the workplace is over three years old. And with that, your December 2016-January 2017 cover story titled Halting harassment? is rightly timed.

The subject of workplace sexual harassment has caught the attention of CEOs. The state of unpreparedness within some organizations to effectively deal with harassment complaints has also been widely reported, leading to reputational risks. In that respect, your story offers useful guidance on how in-house counsel have increased awareness, strengthened their internal complaints committees (ICCs), bettered their investigation tools and systems, and handled complaints more efficiently. Thank you for your efforts.
