Duo moves Bombay HC to plug loopholes in POSH Act

A former corporate executive and an activist lawyer have moved the Bombay high court seeking service protection for members of internal complaints committees (ICC) set up to deal with complaints of sexual harassment in private companies on grounds that they are susceptible to victimization.

The petitioners – Janaki Chaudhary, a former corporate executive who was allegedly targeted and unfairly dealt with by her employer due to the decisions she took as presiding officer of the internal complaints committee at her former workplace, and activist lawyer Abha Singh, have also sought a direction to set up a commission to review the deficiencies in the Protection of Women from Sexual Harassment (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) (POSH) Act, 2013, and to frame guidelines to extend protection to ICC members.
