GENDER COMPLAINTS COMMITTEE AGAINST SEXUAL HARASSMENT AT WORKPLACE

The Gender Complaints Committee against Sexual Harassment at Workplace of NITTTR Chandigarh was established in February, 2011, in accordance with the directives of Honorable Supreme Court of India to ensure safety, security and dignity of women at workplace.

Objectives

  1. To create a congenial working environment which is free of sexual harassment or gender based discrimination for all women employees and students.
  2. To heighten awareness and sensitivity to this important issue amongst all concerned.

Definition of Sexual Harassment

According to Supreme Court Judgment on Sexual Harassment, on the case of Vishakha Vs. the State of Rajasthan (August 1977), the behavior that can be considered as sexual harassment has been explicitly, legally defined as following-Sexual Harassment includes :

  1. Physical contact and advances
  2. Demand or request for sexual favors
  3. Sexually coloured remarks
  4. Display of pornography
  5. Any other unwelcome physical, verbal or nonverbal conduct of a sexual nature

The critical factor in sexual harassment is the un-welcomeness of the behavior.  Thus, it is the impact of behavior on the recipient, rather than the intent of the perpetrator which is to be considered. For any such unfortunate alleged occurrence, the employee has to obligatorily file a complaint to the Gender Complaints Committee. It shall be the duty of the Gender Complaints Committee to make preliminary investigations into a complaint made to it by a complainant, hold enquiries into such complaints, to resolve the matter by delving deep into its merits/demerits, and to issue orders pursuant to the findings of the enquiry.
The Committee is planning to initiate many activities such as workshops, lectures, seminars etc. for sensitization of the staff and students on this issue.
