This is a news item published in today's TOI. I would like to state the following:
1. A sitting judge of the Supreme Court says that discrimination in the private sector must stop. But then how many of us are aware that discrimination exists or even know what is discrimination?
2. The private sector can curb the discrimination on its own also. Should they wait for the government to make legislation?
3. HR professionals often talk about their favourite subjects like leadership, employee engagement, or a newly introduced glamorous topic of LGBTQ but not much on anti-discrimination policies in their company.
4. An ordinary private limited company may not have the know-how to implement an anti-discrimination policy in their company. Therefore, will the national HR bodies like NHRD, NIPM etc. take a lead and create policy guidelines to guide these companies?
