The Book on Sexual harassment by H L Kumar and Gaurav Kumar can be termed as one of the best books on the subject that provides practical application of law at workplace. The procedure, manner of enquiry and model formats make the book very useful and provide guidance to persons practicing in the field.
Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination projected through unwelcome sexual advances, request for sexual favours and other verbal or physical conduct with sexual overtones, whether directly or by implication, particularly submission to or rejection of such a conduct by the female employee was capable of being used for effecting the employment of the female employee and unreasonably interfering with her work performance and had the effect of creating an intimidating or hostile working environment for her. To ensure protection of women, particularly the working-women at their workplace from sexual harassment, this Law has been enacted.
Not many but whatever reported cases are available they are summarized in the relevant chapters of the book to make it more reliable and genuine. Some extraneous aids have been taken by referring to some important judgments under domestic and departmental enquiries. The authors of this book are conscious that there is vast difference between domestic/department inquiries and the inquiries under the PoSH Law. Since the Internal Complaint Committees and Local Complaint Committees vested with vast powers of the Civil Court, so the inquiry procedure has been well defined with much clarity. The book is of immense use for IC members, Advocates, NGOs and women employees who want to get updated on the subject.
