I agree to Madhu, The Act does not specify no. of employees. Even if a single employee is there, it is applicable.
For detail information including the copy of the prevention of sexual harassment Act and the guideline to make a policy you may refer following link

1. The Act is applicable to all establishment; irrespective of whether there are any female (women) workers or not. For example, its applicable if a lady visitor, client, student, nurse, trainer or any female (women) who visits the establishment for any purpose what-so-ever is sexually harassed.
2. Although its not mandatory to have INTERNAL Complaints Committe if the number of employees is less than 10; because in such cases the victim (survivor) can complain directly to the LOCAL Complaints Committee constituted by the appropriate government.
However, it is always PRUDENT to have an Internal Complaints Committee, (constituted as per the Act); for obvious reasons because the penalty in case of cases going to Local Committee could be very high in terms of reputation and image of the company apart from the other consequences of punishment to the accused person.
And such loss of reputation is very difficult to re-build.
