Amendments to the Protection against Harassment of Women at Work Act 2010 were unanimously passed by the National Assembly.
The adjustments were made to Section 2 of the Act’s sub-sections e, f, and h, as per the details. The definition of harassment has been broadened as a result of these modifications. The renewed definition of harassment is the one who can file a complaint; it can either be an employee or an employer.
Furthermore, an individual employed through an agent is now considered an employee under the act. A coworker is likewise defined as an employer under the act.
As far as the sexual harassment is concerned after the amendment, it will be defined as:
“Any unsolicited and unwelcome sexual advances, sexual favour requests, or other sexually related verbal or written communication or physical activity.”
