Women central government employees who have filed complaints of sexual harassment can now get a paid leave of three months during the pendency of inquiry, the government has said.
The leave will be in addition to those already given to central government employees.
The move assumes significance as there have been complaints of accused trying to influence or threaten victims of sexual harassment in a few cases.
Leave up to a maximum of 90 days may be granted to an aggrieved female government servant during the pendency of inquiry, an order issued by Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said.
