Providing Protection to Woman from Sexual Harassment at Workplace and Creating a Safe and Secure Workplace Environment Where No Woman Shall be Subjected to Sexual Harassment is the Sole Objective/Purpose of the New Law/ Act namely "Sexual Harassment of Woman at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition & Redressal) Act 2013". Let us all know this Understand this Recognize this Fact / Reality, Once for all Time to come.
Every Workplace in India is covered by the said Act / Law, IRRESPECTIVE of the Number of Persons employed or Engaged at anyWorkplaace, Establishment, Institutions Registered or Not Registered.
A Mindful Careful Reading of the Preamble / Introductory Paragraph, Sentence written in the said Act of 2013 Will Make it categorically and Clearly Clear that all Workplaces including Our Dwelling House is also Covered and thus a Workplace for the Woman engaged by the House-Holder, House Owner, House Occupier of the such a House, Workplace.
