Employer may be redefined for sexual harassment

The committee on sexual harassment has  recommended change in the definition of  employer to make it  more broad-based  and to include  contractors, homeowners  and  landlords.  ‘Workplace’  can include vehicles provided by employers for  women to travel to and for the work. The panel  also suggested that the head of a private institution  including a company, hospital or university be  specified.  The committee felt preventive aspects  reflected in the proposed Bill had to be strictly in  line with the Supreme Court guidelines in the  Vishaka case.
