The woman has been employed since 2011 with a private housekeeping service, which has been given the contract for the maintenance of several government offices including the Parliament and its allied buildings. In mid-2014, a new site in-charge joined the company and became her supervisor who allegedly harassed her, reports The Hindu.
“He asked me what I would give him in return. When I told him that I could only return what I had been given to work with, he indicated that there were other things I could give him. When I asked him not to talk to me that way, he threatened to have me fired.”
The Lok Sabha secretariat has a functioning sexual harassment committee. The woman alleged she was frequently taunted about her complaint. The private company made the supervisor apologize to the woman and she was transferred to the Lok Sabha.
