Economist Nirmala Banerjee, vice-president of the organisation, said that the activists did not intend to ignore cases of harassment of the male employee. But cases of harassment of women, as with incidents of domestic violence against them, far outnumber cases in which men are victimized.
Alright. Their equation is, "if 49 men suffer and 50 women suffer; the legal protection should be provided only for women."
"Nirmalaji, expressing your rotten belief to your likeminded people is no big deal. Invite me some day for a debate, and I will prove you wrong in front of your own loyalists."
Wonder how people even tolerate such preposterous statements given by Nirmala about harassment!! What is she doing if she is not ignoring male employees? Maybe that too is a provision for women, who are sexually unsatisfied from their partners, can resort to male colleagues freely without fearing of getting accused of sexual harassment.
Long-term thinking of these male-hating feminists.

Dear Swasthik ,
It is really a post that make everyone think......
First of all it is the attitude of the person...
It Is all the way A Women behave. And it is the Attitude of the employer
and the other men in the organisation....
Due to these issues there are so many people who faced lot of problems
and have resigned their job .... I dont want to disclose the name of the
company as such !
The legal action must be immediately taken againest Men or a Women
who are a reason for this sexual harasment.....
THIS IS MOST DANGEROUS ISSUE
We all as HR Must try to frame some policies and avoid it in INDIA.....
Dont frame the policy stating we must Dismiss the person indulged in this activity
If we dismiss in our company , He/She may do the same in other
organisation....
Let us share our ideas to eliminate this issue.....
Correct me if iam wrong !!!
Regards
Nithya

Rebel,
Not only that as per them in work place only harresement problem have sexuall.
All other harrasement , like promotion, verbal, mental, force to work late hours, tuffest Project out of city..etc...against men is thier by birht right along with thier MBA degree.
Whole sale free lincence.
And our stupid men support that.

Nithya,
The best thing is to remove the harrasement and the same should not be any specific gender.
When we talk about equality , every thing should be equall.
Law should be crime based , the same should not be in some assumptions that all the Men born in Criminal family and all the female born in Raja Harish Chandra Family.
Further in 21st century we can very well use the techonology , like video camera at work place , let the truth come , instead of some assumption.

Hi SC,
Being HR practitionars, we feel we are taking care of our women employees. We have made a very clear policy in our company that any sort of sexual harassment will not be tolerated and all the employees are most welcome to come ahead if they come across any such situations. We have also specified that the punishment for this will be critical even up to termination.
Thanks for letting us know how this is treated in other countries.

Hi SC,
Being HR practitionars, we feel we are taking care of our women employees (and not our male employees). We have made a very clear policy in our company that any sort of sexual harassment will not be tolerated (sexual harassment on male is tolerated) and all the employees (only women are welcomed to accuse) are most welcome to come ahead if they come across any such situations. We have also specified that the punishment for this will be critical even up to termination.
Thanks for letting us know how this is treated in other countries. (women are considered victims before enquiry and trial, and men are considered criminals and guilty until proven innocent)

Sirisha Reddy ji,
Do you think all your male employee are born in Criminal family and by birth Rapist?
Would you please explain us , when a women compin, waht evidence you ask from her?
or
It is her statement is sufficient , as all your female employee born in Raja Harish Chandra family??
Let the truth come , instead of some assumption, provided you realy want to punish the real culprit.

Dear All,

I want to discuss one case with all of you. This is something which happened to one of my friends colleague. This colleague of my friend was going back to her home from an official party. she was offered a lift by his boss. This boss holds the position of Area Manager.

She was sexually harassed in the car while they were on their way to home. She even cannot get down the car because her boss took her from a very lonely route. Even if she had jumped out of the car, there would have been no body to rescue her. Infact she would been into a worst condition.

Next Day she discussed this with her peers & informed her senior. She was working in one of the branch office, so informed the HR in HO via Mail.

As a result of this, her boss resigned in next one month of time period. But no legal notice was given to him and he was relived from his duties with a normal reliving letter.

My query is that is this also a case of sexual harassment at workplace.

Can any better decision would have been taken by management.

Please suggest.

Regards,

Juhi

Juhi ,
First of all it is not fare to comment any thing without knowing the both party's statement.
If any thing happend to your frined, in our IPC allready a lot of Provision are there , like eve easing, attempet to rape , rape..etc.
She can definetely get the justice on that , provided she does not lie, please not in those maximum case , she have to just say truth , and she should not change her statement or the accused person have to prove his innocence beyond resonable dought in fornt of court.
So allready the LAW is in her favour , but little smart ness and use of techonology required to find the truth , like lie dector test ..etc.
At last , as I know , a lot of girl use thier boss to get undue benift , and when the same stoped , they complin.
Hope your friends story are not the same.
If she had been victim , Indian IPC LAW had given enough provision to deal that , first use that , instead of creating a AK47 in our work place.

my 2 cents
TECHNICALLY / FORENSICALLY I AM NOT sure of what was done
On the forensic side the following could have been done
1. A through forensic investigation - were there any marks on either person - i.e. proof of resistance from the woman ? if she did NOT resist why ? or was it willing submission that was later changed ?
2. Analysis of the dress - any evidence on the dress
3. Analyse the distance traveled by the vehicle till the next morning when the issue was complained
4. use of alcohol ? were either party drunk ? were both drunk etc ? - to decide mental state
5. Past histories of either party
other related issues
ON THE PERSONNEL SIDE
One will have to KNOW the real truth, the mental state of both parties etc etc BEFORE coming to a conclusion
well... as I said my 2 cents ...
regards
Vinayak
