POSH Practice

The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act 2013 and Rules mandate duties on every employer to provide a safe working environment. It is the duty of an employer to ensure a safe and harassment free work environment. Every employee, regardless of level—whether a manager or a trainee—deserves respect and should be free from sexual harassment of any type.

For this, it stipulates that the harmed party may submit a sexual harassment claim within the company itself and seek recourse through the internal procedure. All companies, public or private, with ten or more employees (permanent, temporary, ad hoc, consultants, interns, or contract workers), regardless of gender, are required by law to adhere to specific rules in order for this to be successful.

We at Khurana & Khurana, are aware of the subtle distinctions that contribute to a welcoming and safe workplace. We offer complete POSH compliance and best practises solutions. We contend that workplace sexual harassment significantly lowers job prospects by generating a hostile work environment. It drastically limits opportunities and harms the harassed person’s mental and/or physical health.

We believe it is crucial to eradicate discriminatory behaviour and restore workers’ faith in the organisation if we want to guarantee equal participation and equal opportunities at work and  this can only be accomplished with strict adherence to the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act, 2013 and other related laws.
