The book discusses the law and precedents in each section. Surprisingly, the authors have combined state-specific workplace safety legislations and given a chart comparing the previous legislations with the new labor laws. Each chapter also includes regularly raised queries and regulatory checklists for quick reference by organizations. The book is intended for in-house lawyers, human resources experts, and practicing attorneys. This book provides a handbook for in-house attorneys and HR experts on how to apply women-specific workplace legislation in their organization. It also includes extensive sections on case law precedents for the POSH Act and maternity benefits that are up to date until 2020. While several books have previously addressed the POSH Act, 2013, there has been a lack of a single book that can completely cover regulations related to women at work.
