Many organisations do have internal committees dealing with sexual harrasment cases. If the victim happens to be a woman or from a minority, we have government sanctioned bodies like the National Commissions for Women and Minorities that would take up cudgels on the victims' behalf. But beyond that, its only the police and the courts that look into these issues.
The reason I have not chosen the police and the courts is because of thier unethical way of handling cases. I have experienced them beating up a person charged with SH, but later he was found notguilty, the cops rendered no apology....

The Apex Court has given specific guidelines regarding fundamental rights of working women in "Vishaka & Others Vs State of Rajasthan" case. Hence we must take these guidelines into consideration while drafting the Sexual Harassment Policy.
The text of the above judgment is attached for your ready reference.

The attached ppt shows only what happens in the US and no information regarding any committee or law that deals with such situations in our country has been given.
It would be good if some information were available regarding the same in India.
that was a great presentation & thanks for share it to all of us. Well I am a trainer on prevention of sexual harassment at work place. I work for an NGO. I would like to have some case studies of experiences of such incidents from the private sector. Your sharing would definitely help me in passing on the info to my students group. I am attaching a file by the national commission for women and their guidelines
What sameer has pointed out is correct. Also it is mandatory for all the private & public sector companies/firms to constitute a committee to address issues on sexual harassment at workplace. Given below is the guideline on the committee:
Guidelines on Prevention of Sexual Harassment suggest both preventive and remedial measures
The employers should:
1.Set up a sexual harassment complaints committee which
is headed by a woman
has a minimum of 50% women members
has at least one outside member who is familiar with the issue
2. Make the employees aware by
widely publicising the guidelines
members name and addresses prominently displayed
3. Amend conduct rules to prohibit sexual harassment
4. Ensure that no woman employee has any grounds to believe that she is disadvantaged in connection with the employment if she complains about sexual harassment.
Also to be noted is that the employer or his/her relatives do not have any place in the committee.
There can be criminal proceedings initiated against the harasser.
I hope this info will be helpful to you & the other members too.
We have initiated a campaign to educating people on the committee.
I would be very happy if the members in this forum help in taking this campaign forward by passing this info your friends & team members.
I am sharmila ur ppt presentation was really useful with practical knowledge and it is really necessary to create awareness and the ways and methods to act against it,
Even I have added my small ppt on sexual harassment at work place, which i did it during my ug second year, it would be like a basic understanding of it not as ur indepth knowledge and applicability,
if any one likes to hav just basic understanding ,
u can hav a look at it,
with warm regards,
