While in most of the cases of sexual harassment at workplace, victim is female, but an increasing number of cases are there against both men and women harassing male employees. Anyone can be a victim of Sexual assault, without concerning their age, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Men and boys who have been sexually assaulted or abused may have many of the same reactions and feelings as other survivors of sexual assault, in addition they may also face some sufferings because of social attitudes and stereotypes about men and masculinity. There are enough laws in India to safeguard women’s position from sexual offences but there are no adequate laws to secure men’s rights thereof.  Though, so many social organizations are working in India for the rights of men in society but there is still a great need of sufficient laws to secure the rights of men from sexual offences. This paper attempts to study the concept of sexual harassment with men at workplace in India and the need of prevalent Laws for the same to secure the ends of justice on the part of both men and women.
