This was discussed earlier. The opinion of the members was that you can’t form the ICC in such case, the LCC will take care of complains with regard to this factory
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.

Usha I had the same query earlier : What if this is an organisation that has no women workers at senior post ?
Hi Usha - do you know of any trainer/org that can conduct workshops on awareness / safety programmes ? Regards,
