Sexual Harassment violates the fundamental rights of a woman to equality under Articles 14 and 15 of the Constitution of India and her right to life and to live with dignity under Article 21 of the Constitution and right to practice any profession, which includes a right to a safe environment free from Sexual Harassment. Sexual Harassment at the workplace is a horrific violation of an individual’s rights and serious crime.
For prevention of sexual harassment at workplaces and to address the increasing number of complaints of sexual harassment, the Prevention of Sexual Harassment Laws (POSH) Act was introduced. Every Employer having 10 or more employees must constitute an Internal Committee (IC) within the Organization to handle complaints of sexual harassment. The Law is applicable to all kinds of Organizations – Private and Public Sector companies, Government Bodies, Ministries, NGOs, Schools & Colleges etc.
Under the POSHHelp initiative of our NGO we help many organizations and corporates in end to end implementation of POSH Compliance and provide other services & Trainings.
