Sexual harassment under posh act

If I orally inform my employer regarding the s*xual harassment at work place, is he obliged or liable to take any action or is duty bound to take any action?

And can he be legally held liable for not taking any action?

Without a written complaint, he cannot take action against the person, and hence employer is not responsible for it.

You have to lodge written complaint

He is not liable unless you have made the complaint in writing but he can be held liable for not assisting you to lodge a written complaint. Section 9 of THE SEXUAL HARASSMENT OF WOMEN AT WORKPLACE (PREVENTION, PROHIBITION AND REDRESSAL) ACT, 2013.
