Companies are required to file the Director's report by 30 October. The Companies (Accounts) Rules, 2014 have made it mandatory for companies to make a disclosure of compliance under the POSH Act 2013. This means that non-compliance with the Prevention of Sexual Harassment at Workplace Act 2013 will not only attract penalty under POSH Act 2013 but also attracts penal consequences under Companies Act 2013.
Most of the companies assume that merely having a POSH policy will make them compliant with the Act. Please understand having a POSH policy is not enough, constituting an ICC, conducting employee awareness sessions are all part of becoming POSH compliant.
For more information, please read the FAQs https://lnkd.in/ftkwRhu by Pallavi Pareek on the filing of Annual compliance report under POSH Act 2013.
