3. Jane Doe is a software developer who is employed at a small boutique software
application company. As part of her role, she is usually deployed at client sites for period
ranging from 2 months to 1 year. Currently, her assignment involves working with a large
conglomerate having interests in FMCG, Technology, Automobiles etc., who is the client
of the company she is employed with. Therefore, she performs her job at the client site
(i.e. the conglomerate company).
She has been working there for the past 6 months and her performance has been good but
in the last 2 months she has found that few of the employees of the conglomerate company
have during discussions have been hostile and offensive. She has been made to sit in
office late despite of completing her job and she filling her time sheet. In fact on
numerous occasions she has been yelled at. Further, the discussions during the meetings
have veered and are covered with innuendos, which she felt unwelcome to be part of. In
fact few of the employees had insisted on taking her out for a private dinner which she
declined and thereafter her performance has been rated ‘below average’. Hence, she
reported this to her employer who has brushed aside her concerns stating that the issue
does not concern employees of the software application company in which she is
employed and that this may be an excuse for her ‘below performance’ rating.
In light of the above circumstance, she has approached you for an advise on the following:
a. Does the facts and the actions described above constitute harassment? If yes under which
law? (5 Marks)
b. To whom can this harassment be reported and how should such reporting of harassment
