The POSH Act 2013 contains provisions for the establishment of committees to assist aggrieved women or victims of sexual harassment. According to Section 4 of the said Act, the employer of each organization is obliged to establish an Internal Complaints Committee (ICC). The purpose of this body would be to deal with complaints of sexual harassment and help victims protect their dignity in the workplace. Every institution or organization must have an ICC, and failure to establish an ICC can lead to criminal liability for the employer.
