Did you know that a significant percentage of women, about two out of five, experience sexual harassment in the workplace? In order to tackle this issue and promote compliance, the Government of India introduced the POSH Compliance Act in 2013. As part of this initiative, employers are now required by law to submit an annual compliance report (ACR) each year. This helps to provide accurate data on the level of POSH compliance among employers and the number of complaints received and resolved. By submitting this report, employers can demonstrate their commitment to addressing and preventing sexual harassment in the workplace.
According to Section 21 of the POSH Act, each corporation or business must produce an annual report and submit it to the employer and the neighborhood District Officer each year. The information that must be included in the annual report produced by the IC is further defined by POSH Act Rule 14. The rules for the Annual Compliance Report follow the ideal and the year.
POSH training of employees helps them to get aware of their rights under the PoSH Act. This helps women to come out and report any sexual misconduct from a college or a senior in the workplace and so, ensures a safe working environment.
Unwelcome sexual advances and inappropriate sexual or gender-related remarks between employees happen, and although sexual harassment towards women is most common, people of all genders can be both victims and perpetrators.
