The law for Prevention of Sexual Harassment at workplace is applicable to every woman who may get harassed at any workplace. It could be a visitor, freelancer, consultant or a customer, literally any woman who is visiting your workplace. It could be your direct employee, or also an employee on a third-party payroll or a visitor or a domestic help at your place.

Thus, the law caters to the women at a larger scale and does not restrict the application to the place where a person is employed. Doing that would provide only a semi shield from harassment and make women vulnerable at any other workplace. Thus, the act extends protection on the basis of whether you were in the premises of that workplace and not on your status as an employee, visitor or guest.
