The National Commission for Women (NCW) has come out with dedicated e-mail address ([email protected]) to report instances of sexual harassment at workplace. On receiving complaint mail, NCW will take forward complaints of sexual harassment at workplace received so that appropriate action may be taken, as per law.
The launch of dedicated e-mail address comes after several such complaints were made by women from various fields to NCW by women who have narrated their ordeal under the ‘#Metoo’ movement on social media. It is also pursuance of NCW’s objective of zero tolerance of sexual harassment of women at all workplaces and commitment to ensure safety and dignity of women including at all workplaces. Recently NCW had received many formal written complaints from various women about instances of sexual harassment at their workplace.
