Can a person file a complaint of sexual harassment anonymously under POSH?
The POSH Act allows a person to file a complaint of sexual harassment anonymously. The act allows this to protect the identity of the person making the complaint. This can help the complainant to feel more secure in making the complaint, especially in cases where the complainant may be concerned about victimization.
Anonymity can also encourage more people to come forward and report incidents of sexual harassment, which can help to create a safer and more respectful workplace for everyone.
The POSH Act recognizes the need for confidentiality in such cases, and complainants have the option to request the ICC not to reveal their identity during the inquiry.
However, it is essential to note that submitting an anonymous complaint may affect the credibility of the complaint and investigation. This may limit the ICC's ability to gather evidence and conduct a thorough investigation.
