Did you know? If an employer fails to constitute an Internal Committee or breaches provisions of the PoSH Act or any rules made thereunder, they shall be punishable with a fine of fifty thousand rupees (INR 50,000).

Unfortunately, a recent Survey by Deloitte states that 40% of the respondents are yet to train their IC members regarding PoSH, although the PoSH law specifically mandates this.

“Equality of status and opportunity” must be secured for all and equality of every person is guaranteed by the Constitution. This programme will help you to understand all aspects of Prevention of Sexual Harassment (POSH) at workplaces based on the handbook on Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace, (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 Government of India, Ministry of Women and Child Development, November 2015.

The focus of our programme is to create awareness on sexual harassment, provide you a concrete understanding about PoSH and enlighten the learners about the redressal procedures.

The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition, and Redressal) Act was introduced with an objective to provide protection against sexual harassment of women at workplace.
