Abstract

Due to the processes of industrialization, modernization, and globalization, society has experienced an increasing flow of women in the workforce across the globe. Apart from the other issues like role conflict, balancing family and work demands; a woman has been the victim of many atrocities at the workplace where sexual harassment is of special attention. Sexual harassment is not considered a serious issue as it is seldom reported. But sexual harassment is a chronic stressor as various studies reveal that it is a serious issue that puts the victim under severe mental stress and hinders workplace activities. It not only creates severe stress among the victim but also affects their productive capacity. Due to the stigma attached, it is a less reported phenomenon which on one hand makes it unrecognized and on the other hand affects the victim more by creating a stressful environment at the workplace. Though there are various legislative measures to eradicate the issue, the ignorance on the part of the victim makes the legislative measure ineffective. With this backdrop, the paper seeks to study the issue of sexual harassment and its impact on the victim. Based on both primary as well as secondary data, the paper finds sexual harassment as one of the major factors responsible for the stressful work environment among women in the workplace. The Paper concludes that mere legislative measures are not going to eradicate the issue. There is a serious need for public sensitization and need to increase in awareness of sexual harassment laws for women at workplaces.
