Prevention of Sexual Harassment (POSH) helped men & women in getting justice for the cases of sexual harassment they have faced in the workplace.
POSH training of employees helps them to get aware of their rights under the PoSH Act. This helps women to come out and report any sexual misconduct from a college or a senior in the workplace and so, ensures a safe working environment.
Unwelcome sexual advances and inappropriate sexual or gender-related remarks between employees happen, and although sexual harassment towards women is most common, people of all genders can be both victims and perpetrators.
