    Over the last decade, there has been a growing awareness worldwide of the existence and extent of sexual harassment in the workplace. Governments, employers' and workers' organizations in both industrialized and developing countries have introduced a range of laws, policies and procedures aimed at preventing and combatting it. In 2013, the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 was brought into force by the Ministry of Women and Child. Despite these efforts, the benefits of these laws do not, often, percolate down to the beneficiaries. The main of this deficiency is the lack of awareness of the main stakeholders, like the women workers, the beneficiaries themselves, and sometimes the implementers.

    The proposed program would provide a comprehensive information of different aspects of sexual harassment policies. The program would be extremely useful to different stakeholders who are engaged in the area of disseminating information on sexual harassment laws, policies, and procedures.

    The proposed program is designed, keeping in view the concept of sexual harassment, global and national level initiatives to prevent sexual harassment, effective working of internal complaints committees/local complaints committees, creating sustainable inclusive environment in the world of work along with good practices from Indian scenario.


    After completion of the programme, the participant of the programme will be awarded the Certificate of Completion as per grading schemes application at the Institute of Law, Nirma University.
