POSH compliance services play a crucial role in fostering a safe and respectful workplace environment for women, addressing both the legal obligations of the company and the moral imperative of ensuring freedom from harassment and discrimination, especially for women employees.
Preventing workplace harassment of women is a critical aspect of building a safe and inclusive work environment. POSH, which stands for the Prevention of Sexual Harassment at Workplace, is a comprehensive set of guidelines and regulations designed to address and prevent instances of sexual harassment for women at workplaces in India.
By adhering to POSH regulations, companies create an environment where female employees feel safe, respected, and empowered to report any instances of harassment without fear of retaliation.
Enforced under the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition, and Redressal) Act, 2013, POSH mandates organizations to establish mechanisms as per the said Act that ensure the safety and dignity of their women employees.
