PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Association of Working Women (Perwanis) wants the Government to make the Code of Practice for the prevention of sexual harassment at workplaces part of the Labour Law to better protect the interest of the 4.23 million women workers nationwide. 

Its president, Silam Hassan, said the code was ineffective, as many employers were not adopting it and when victims lodged complaints against their management staff, they were further penalised.
