With work from home being extended by many companies till the end of 2020, the Companies must also consider taking actions to make their women employees safe.

In doing so, companies could consider the following amongst other suggestions:

1. POSH Policy of the Company should clearly state that work from home would be classified as “workplace”, as well as that the definition of “sexual harassment” would include any verbal/non-verbal conduct by electronic means, to avoid any ambiguity as to the applicability of POSH.

2. Create an online reporting mechanism, e.g. a virtual mailbox or a dedicated email address, to receive and forward complaints to ICC.

3. Hold awareness programs and ICC hearings virtually.

For the legal analysis/applicability of the POSH Act in the work from home environment and more practical suggestions to the Corporates, please read my detailed article here.
