Phaneesh Murthy, booted out of iGate on Tuesday on charges of sexual misconduct - a charge he denies, is not alone in facing a sex harassment case.
In spite of growing intolerance towards harassment among corporates across the world and strict laws, there are many CEOs in India and abroad who have been charged with sexual harassment.
HR consultants say less than 1% of sex harassment cases are reported in India as powerful employers/owners sack the complainants and give negative references to the complainant during background checks.
