    Got beaten by one of the employees as I stopped him from harassing a female employee

    I am working in a software company. Just yesterday one of the male employees was trying to harass a female employee. I intervened in order to stop him but in the process , got beaten by him. The manager hasnít taken any action against him till now. How to get justice in such a case?

    Dear Friend,

    It is a very shameful act to harass female employees at work place and he deserves to be punished. This behavior of his comes under sexual harassment act and is punishable by Constitution of India and as per Indian laws.

    As per Sexual Harassment Act, every organization has to set up a sexual harassment committee consisting of at least 10 members and you can complain this issue to the committee. If there is no such committee then the organization will come in serious trouble and you can inform this on any women helpline no. in your city.

    But, in this case, he may have to lose his job and may even be jailed. So, before going to such extreme, think carefully and you may once warn him.

    Also, don't do anything individually, take that girl together otherwise you will be unnecessarily pointed out.

    I hope you won't have much problem regarding this.

    All the best.
    Thank you.

    Hello,

    This is very seriosu offence. You should again tell your manager about the unfortunate
    incident at office . If he does not do anything then you should write to the higher authorities
    about it. Alternatively, you can take leagal action against your collegue. He has no right to beat
    you in office. A police complaint is also another option for you.

    Bye,

    First thing you should learn that never get inside anyones matter till the time you dont think its an emergency, if he was harrasing that girl then you need to call the police at that time only if the matter was serious and girl was also asking for help, but if girl was not asking for help then never get inside the matter as it may be their personal matter, or the person whom you are inteveining may be trying to do something else, the biggest mistake you did was not calling the senior at that moment of time because its not your responsibility to stop that guy for doing that, because at the end of the day you will suffer for all the things. Now when your boss is not taking any action against him then you should speak to the higher authorities and as you said that you are working in a software company then there must be CCTV cameras, just take the recordings with you and give it to police then they will register an FIR against him and you also get satisfied bu the same.

    It is very sad to hear this.. take the lady and again complaint to your manager. If manager is not responding to you then complaint to higher authority and warn your manager that you are taking this issue to higher authorities. If you don't do this same thing will be repeated again and again because you failed to complaint.

    You should remember that CEO of iGate Phaneesh Murthy is removed from his post because of sexual harassment.

    If nobody respond to your complaint then go to police station and call media.. every one will come to your feet.

    happy to assist you

    hello,
    It is really horrible to listen that this happen with you should not indulge in such matter untill any security is not available . Now a day offence in India is increasing in such a extent that it is effecting a lot.
    And your boss is not taking any action against it then you should talk to police or talk to higher authorities about that they will surely take some action so that it should not be repeated again .You can also take help with that girl she will also help you because this happen with her only.
    thanks....

    Hi,

    This is really unfair.
    If no body is listening and your manager is not taking any action against it, then you yourself must take a strict decision.
    You must warn that employee that it is wrong on his behalf.

    You and that female colleague especially should complain to police.
    And that female colleague who was being harassed must leave her job.
    She should not work in such circumstances where a lady is not respected.

    Before complaining or doing a police report , you must be very sure that the person is not too dangerous.
    Also take such a step only if your female colleague is involved with you and supported.

    Good luck

    Hi friend,

    I think This is very serious offence.
    You should again tell your manager about the unfortunate incident at office .
    If he does not do anything then you should write to the higher authorities about it.
    Alternatively, you can take legal action against your colleague.
    He has no right to beat
    you in office.
    A police complaint is also another option for you.

    Thanks!!!
    all the best..............
