The Vishakha Guidelines recognized that Sexual harassment at Workplace is a violation of human rights and therefore all employers and responsible heads of the institutions must prepare certain rules of conduct at their respective Workplaces. The Court utilized Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women as an interpretive dispositional aid.
