Sexual harassment at workplace - Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) report not sufficient- Karnataka High Court

Read Judgment

The procedure under Service Rules is indispensable, the Court underscored.

"On a coalesce of the provisions of the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013, and the Rules what would unmistakably emerge is, where the Service Rules exist, the report of the Internal Complaints Committee becomes a fact-finding report or a preliminary report, with regard to the allegation of sexual harassment and the employer becomes duty-bound to proceed under the Service Rules before imposing any major penalty,” Justice M Nagaprasanna of the High Court opined.
