India Pledges Safety in Workplace


Earlier this week, India took initiatives to promote workplace safety for women. Sexual harassment in the workplace has become a central issue in the country’s legislature, and officials are keen on mending this problem. The law states that a current female staff member in a senior executive position acts as an officer to the women in the office to provide a safe, consistent voice if need be. This officer is joined by a committee of women in the workplace who are committed to and passionate about keeping their co-workers safe. Any female employee is allowed to confide in the committee or officer about any uncomfortable behavior or harassment she may experience.
