Saumya Sinha & Uditie Aggarwal, Amity University, Noida


This abstract summarises a thorough research project exploring the complex connection between corporate governance procedures and the Prevention of Sexual Harassment (POSH) Act at work. Employees in a variety of businesses continue to experience widespread sexual harassment, and corporate governance plays a critical role in addressing and preventing such events. The study explores the many facets of corporate governance, including board structures, leadership dynamics, moral principles, and business culture, as well as how they affect POSH Act compliance. The research aims to establish a clear link between successful corporate governance frameworks and the implementation of the POSH Act by looking at case studies, surveys, and published interviews with corporate leaders.

The report also looks at the systems and guidelines that businesses may implement to foster a welcoming and secure workplace and lower the incidence of sexual harassment. It also looks at the difficulties and barriers that firms could run across when attempting to match corporate governance concepts with POSH Act requirements. The results of this study will help us comprehend the crucial role corporate governance plays in maintaining a work environment free from harassment, advancing gender equality, and assuring adherence to the POSH Act's legislative framework. In the end, it promotes a fusion of corporate governance best practices with the goals of the POSH Act to develop a more secure and equal workplace for all workers.
