Jaipur. The Rajasthan High Court has sent a message on social media on behalf of the chief manager of a bank in the case of harassment of female employees working in another state, that distance does not matter in the digital age. If the woman concerned works in another state, then the sexual harassment case through the message will be treated as a crime at the workplace. Along with this, the court has rejected the petition filed against the charge sheet given by the bank administration.
Judge SP Sharma gave this order on the petition of Sanjeev Mishra. The court has clarified in its order that if a man is posted in Jaipur and he harasses a woman posted in another state on a digital platform, it would be presumed that the incident took place in the same office. The court also said that the petitioner is the chief manager. In such a situation, his office period cannot be considered from 10:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
It was alleged in the petition that she has been accused of sexual harassment by sending messages on social media to a woman bank employee posted in another state. In the case, the GM of the bank also went outside the jurisdiction and gave him a charge sheet and charge sheet. According to bank rules, investigation can be done only if there is harassment at the workplace. It was also said in the petition that he is accused of sending messages after the office period. Therefore, it cannot be considered harassment at the workplace.
