Regarding the occupational problems, the women employees in IT sector are facing health hazards like eye fatigue, headache, thyroid problem and others. It could be seen that over a past decade, a large number of women employees in IT sector suffer from heart related diseases. Moreover, the Poor health creates huge strain on physical and mental pressure in working places. At present, the large numbers of women employees also face many social, cultural and economic challenges. Hence, this study is an attempt to identify and analyse the reasons that affects the health of IT sector women employee respondents and give suitable measures to reduce the work related stress in IT sector among women employee respondents.
