Dear Members,
According to section 1(3) of Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (PP&R) Act, 2013 it shall come into force on such date as the Central Govt. may by notification in the official gazette appoint. Now the question arises whether the central Govt. has declared the date of its applicability ? If yes, then plz let us know the date.
Thanks & regards,

Dear Members,

On enforcement of the Act of 2013, every employer of workplace needs to constitute Internal Complaints Committee (ICC). This committee should consist of one Presiding Officer, minimum two members amongst employees and one member amongst NGO committed to the cause of women or a person familiar with the issues relating to sexual harassment.

The Presiding Officer should be a senior level woman employee from workplace. If senior level woman employee is not available from workplace then a senior level woman employee shall be nominated from other offices or administrative units or from any other workplace of the same employer or other department or organization.

So, minimum 4 members are required to constitute this committee and half the members in the committee should be women.

In case any employer fails to constitute this committee (ICC) or contravenes / attempts to contravene / abets contravention any of the provisions of this Law, there is a fine up to Rs. 50,000/-.

To my knowledge there is no mention in the Act anywhere about the requirement of minimum number of total employees and or minimum number of women employees to form this committee (ICC). However, the Government Authorities are insisting the committee if you have more than 10 employees.

I am attaching herewith a sample of Notice of constitution of this committee for your ready reference.
