--Nomination Letters to Internal Committee Members-Statutory?—
Every Employer of a Workplace is Law-bound to “Constitute an Internal Committee by an Order in writing” and Notify Constitution of I C consisting of Four Members to be “Nominated by the Employer” namely: i) A Presiding Officer who shall be a woman employed at a Senior Level at Workplace from amongst Employees; ii) Not less than Two Members from amongst Employees; and iii) One Non-Employee Third Party, with proviso that at least One-Half of Total Members Nominated shall be Women.
As a corollary, Every Employer is Duty-bound to “Issue Nomination Letters” on the Official Letter Head, to all Members of IC informing her/his Nomination mentioning a) the Period of Nomination, b) Gist of their 24 Legal Duties & Role, c) Conditions for their Removal from IC for Dereliction of Duty & Breach of Provisions of Secrecy (Section- 16) and for abusing her/his Position as to render her/his continuance in office/IC prejudicial to the public interest.
Nomination Letter has soothing effect on the recipients, activates them, leaves them with Comforting & Uplifting Message & Feelings, reinforces Self-Esteem and almost answers unasked questions, clears doubts, dilemmas and misgivings etc.
Point to Ponder: Has Every Employer issued Proper Nomination Letters to their IC Members? Employers are requested to issue Nomination Letter to their IC Members which will havefar-reaching impact. Anything Thing Worth Doingis Worth Doing WELL.
