Evolution of workplace harassment laws in Pakistan: the Protection Against Harassment of Women at the Workplace Act 2010 and the 2022 Amendment

The Protection Against Harassment of Women at the Workplace Act 2010 is a seminal legislation in Pakistan, providing victims of workplace harassment with an opportunity to pursue legal recourse. However, the law is subject to some limitations: primarily a narrow definition of ‘workplace’ and ‘employee’ with a focus only on sexual harassment of women, limiting the effectiveness of the law in addressing all forms of harassment faced by any employee in different types of workplaces. In 2022, an amendment to the Act was introduced, expanding its scope, addressing the limitations of the initial Act and making justice for victims of workplace harassment more accessible.
