Abstract/Citation: Made under Labour Relations Act, 1995. Regulates procedures to deal with cases of sexual harassment in the workplace. Sexual harassment is defined as "unwanted conduct of a sexual nature". Also sets forth guidelines for employers for creating and maintaining a working environment in which the dignity of employees is respected, and in which victims of sexual harassment will not feel that their grievances are ignored or trivialised, or fear reprisals.
