The POSH Act has put into practice with the objective of preventing and protecting women against workplace sexual harassment and to ensure effective redressal of complaints of sexual harassment. While the law aims at providing every woman a safe, secure and dignified working environment, free from all forms of harassment, proper implementation of the provisions of the statute remains a challenge.
To provide you safe and gender-neutral work environment, an organization’s employees, managers & directors need to be educated on what is and isn’t sexual harassment under POSH training. For example, sexual harassment isn’t the only limited to its most obvious form such as making inappropriate advances. It can also include unwelcome verbal or physical behavior that creates a hostile work environment. Also, it is not limited to the office space only, but can go beyond within the work environment. Which is mandatory for every organization employing more than ten people to constitute an Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) to address and redress complaints of sexual harassment.
According to Compliance Update for Mumbai it is mandatory to register every organization which have 10 or more employees. For other States it is going to be mandatory soon.
