With the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 coming into force from December 2013, all organizations (yes, all) should have a policy on sexual harassment and also have a committee to redress the same. Please find a note which will help you implement this in your organization. We have also included a model policy, which you can modify to suit your organization’s requirements. Trust this is helpful. Feel free to forward to other organizations, friends, startups who will also need to follow this. Lets make our places safe for our women.
