Presenting the first of its kind capacity building workshop for Internal Committee members at Higher Educational Institutes. The training will equip you on the reading and application of the Sexual Harassment of Women at the Workplace Act
(Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) 2013 and the UGC (Prevention, prohibition and redressal of sexual harassment of women employees and students in higher educational institutions) Regulations, 2015. The POSH Act and the regulation have to be read together whenever POSH mechanisms are setup -when preventive, prohibitive and redressal mechanisms are put in place in any higher educational institution.
The UGC Regulation is specifically designed keeping in mind the needs of HEIs, like gender-neutral protection of all students keeping in mind their vulnerability, recognising actions to be taken depending on the harasser; action under service rules for employees and disciplinary action against students.
The Act and the regulation give wide scope to the IC of the HEI and would include the following cases where-
(a) a teacher sexually harasses another teacher;
(b) a student sexually harasses a co-student;
(c) harassment of students by peers from outside the limits of the HEI, like in case of fests;
(d) where a teacher sexually harasses a student, on account of the hierarchical relationship; and
(e) a student sexually harasses a teacher.
A number of queries arise in the context of sexual harassment at the campus, such as what if the sexual harassment took place outside the campus? What does a vulnerable group imply? What is the procedure to file a complaint against a student/teacher, in case of sexual harassment? What if the Chairperson doesn’t register the complaint?What if there is a violation of the guidelines?
