All workplaces employing 10 or more than workers are mandated under the Act to constitute an Internal Complaints Committee.
There is a clause in the law that in case a senior level woman employee is not available, the Presiding Officer shall be nominated from other offices or administrative units of the workplace. Further that in case the other offices/administrative units of the workplace do not have a senior level woman employee, the Presiding Officer shall be nominated from any other workplace of the same employer or other department or organization.

The clause in regard to appointment of an "external" member reads: one member from amongst non-governmental organisation or association committed to the cause of women or 'a person familiar with the issues relating to sexual harassment'.
In case we have an person in our company who is an expert with the issues relating to sexual harassment, can we avoid appointing an external member (from NGO or association).

Dear All, Do you have a letter format for new members joining the ICC. Thanks in advance

Dear ANNONYMOUS Friend @ posting #13,
When there is a requirement of appointing external person in a committee, how can you appoint any person internally and avoid appointing external person?
You have no choice but to engage external person in the internal committee.
