Make Sure Your Org Has The Right Practices To Handle Sexual Harassment At Work

A full-day workshop on role & functions of Internal Committee (IC)

Many SMBs and smaller organisations think that they don’t really need a formal process to deal with sexual harassment at work.  BUT. It only takes one incident to damage your reputation among employees as well as the industry.

Don’t be caught on the wrong foot when a case occurs in your organisation. Have your processes in place and deal with the situation fairly and effectively.

The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 is a great piece of legislation with great intention but like all other laws, this law also suffers from several practical challenges.

Learn how to set up an Internal Complaints Committee in your organisation, and how to make it truly work the way it should. (All orgs with over 10 employees are mandated to set up an Internal Complaints Committee).

This workshop is conducted by trained and certified professionals from POSH at Work, an organization that believes that sexual harassment at workplace does not only cause mental and/or physical damage to the person harassed but also seriously curtails opportunities at work by creating a discriminatory work environment. POSH at Work is the only organisation which is empanelled by the Ministry of Women and Child Development.

POSH at Work is an organization that believes that sexual harassment at workplace does not only cause mental and/or physical damage to the person harassed but also seriously curtails opportunities at work by creating a discriminatory work environment.

We believe that, in order to ensure equal participation and equal opportunity at work, it is extremely important to do away with discriminatory behaviour and re-instil the faith of employees/workers in the organization. We believe that this can be done only with effective and efficient compliance with the law against sexual harassment i.e. the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 and other related laws.
