Consequent to the enactment of the ‘Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013’, this Department is considering issuing instructions for the grant of leave to the aggrieved woman during pendency of inquiry up to a period of three months in addition to the leave which she is otherwise entitled to.
