POSH Act Compliance
and Training

The Government of India introduced the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act (also colloquially known as “POSH Act”), 2013 in India, to effectively address matters pertaining to sexual harassment of women at their place of work.

The POSH Act mandates that every organization with more than 10 employees should form an Internal Committee (IC) that can facilitate the complaints of sexual harassment of women at workplace. The other crucial requirement is to coach the IC on their responsibilities and also to create awareness within employees and through regular POSH Trainings. Our POSH Training sessions have helped employers to identify potential areas of sexual harassment of women at workplace and address those efficiently. These sessions focus upon educating the IC members and employees about various forms of sexual harassment and the redressal mechanism, thus instilling confidence in them to speak up if they witness any inappropriate behaviour with a sexual undertone.

All workplaces within India including public or private sector, government, or non-government organizations.

When the number of employees crosses 10 in an organization (and that has female employees), it is mandatory for the Employer to constitute an Internal Committee.

Yes, POSH Act applies to workplaces with less than ten employees. However, in such a scenario formation of IC is not mandatory.

CEO, Managing Director, Proprietor, Managing Partner, Directors, owners of business and all such parties who construe as ‘Employers’ would be held responsible for POSH non-compliance.

In addition to this, there are other provisions towards non-compliance too. Employers will face double punishment and be convicted again if they have been previously convicted of an offense punishable under the POSH Act.

Employers can face cancellation of license and withdrawal or non-renewal of registration for carrying on business if there are extended penalties under the POSH Act.
