sexual harassment


Hello respected lawyers/gentlemen

One of my friend was s*xually harassed at her workplace in early October, she has been going through a mental trauma ever since it happened, she connected with her HR department and other authorities but nobody is ready to help her, she sent several complaints via email and their HR is saying that since the alleged person has apologized we need to close the matter, she has this conversation on email, alleged person is one of the director in the company and even CEO of the company is keeping mum, they have put her on bench which means she does not have any project to work on and they will eventually terminate/release her in another month, however they should have terminated the director but they are not doing it. She has not filed any complaint yet with the police and she now wants to pursue this matter legally and fight it out.

One of his friend tried to help her and they have put him on bench as well.

Please advise how we should go about pursuing this matter in a way that justice is awarded to my friend.

Thank you - Ubaid!!

File a police complaint against this particular Director accordingly. In case if a company, usually Directors have a share and so maybe he is being given a preference. Sometimes Directors are also appointed Directors but even then the highest management is always given preferencial treatment within an organization. I work with few women organizations and know how difficult it is for your friend. So please take her to a good counsellor.

director

when he apologized, this confirmed his wrong deed.. that apology evidence is enough to prove crime happen,

police complaint will be filed on this director only... no need to mention company ,, the director is indiviually  charged

 

delay also immarterial as she inform the matter to HR same time,

i suggest her to forthwith report the matter to Police or if she can not gather courage then to mail her complaint to police where their email is available on website,

guilty must be punished and this attitude of keeping silence and allowing the culprit to continue with his activities is directly encouraging him to do the same with others for which at a point of time she would realize. the only option and in the interest of society is to file a police complaint without any delay

My suggestion is that she may approach some effective women' forum, take their support, approach the Senior superintendent of Police, lodge a complaint with the sr. police officer, have the complaint published in the press, see how fast the action will be taken, as it is they have planned to sack you, donot worry about the repurcursions, bring the culprits on books.

She should take a legal action and should not leave such a cheap and bad person and don't give him any further chance to tease any other female in any way. He should be punished, whoever that person may be, whatever designation he is having! I can help her. She is most welcome.

no facts given but it appears there is genuine case which company doe s not want to undertake as the suspect is not ordinary persons (atleast inside company).  P{olice station is the right place to start with and if they take no action move to NCW/SCW

Thank you all for your replies, I wanted to ask

if it is necessary to file a police complaint before approaching NCW or DCW, and how long will it take for this matter to be resolved if we directly approach NCW or DCW?
