Hello Dear Team Members! I am having some difficulty in formulating the maternity benefit and anti-sexual harassment policy in my company. We want to keep employees covered under these policies, however, we may not be in a position to provide all benefits and security as proposed by Act. Can you please help me by suggesting the basics that I may implement for these policies? Looking forward to your valued response.

There is no discounting on statutory compliances. It will be perilous to disregard the statutory requirement and ultimately will prove to be very costly. Basically, the POSH Act is only procedural, other than the Creche so you consider its implementation fully. But Maternity Benefit Act 1961 is a social welfare legislation and during the inspection by the Labour Inspection. this is specifically looked into, so there is no scope for dilution.
