What Steps Can women Employees Take To Prevent Sexual Harassment? -

What Steps Can women Employees Take To Prevent Sexual Harassment? -

Identify/Recognise Harassment
Any Complaints ? Please Contact
  Your Local Police Station  
  Women Police Stations 
Ask yourself the following:
Do I agree to the behaviour?
- Does the behaviour make me uncomfortable?
- Does the behaviour violate my dignity as an individual?
- Does it violate my right to work in dignity in a safe working environment?
Do not blame yourself. Don't ignore sexual harassment in the hope that it will go away.
Do the unexpected: Name the behavior. Whatever he's just done, say it, and be specific. Hold the harasser accountable for his actions. Don't make excuses for him; don't pretend it didn't really happen. Take charge of the encounter and let people know what he did. Privacy protects harassers, but visibility undermines them. 
 Make honest, direct statements. Speak the truth (no threats, no insults, no obscenities, no appeasing verbal fluff and padding). Be serious, straight forward, and blunt.
Demand that the harassment stop
Make it clear that all women have the right to be free from sexual harassment. Don't respond to the harasser's excuses or diversionary tactics
His behavior is the issue. Say what you have to say, and repeat it if he persists. Reinforce your statements with strong, self-respecting body language
End the interaction on your own terms, with a strong closing statement: 'You heard me. Stop harassing women'
If you decide to file charges later
1. Keep records: Keep track of what happens in a journal or diary and keep any letters or notes or other documents you receive. Write down the dates, times, places, and an account of what happened. Write down the names of any witnesses.
2. Write a letter. People have successfully stopped sexual harassment by writing a letter detailing the behavior that is offensive and asking the person who is harassing them to stop the behavior  The letter should be polite, unemotional, and detailed. Such a letter seems to be more powerful than a verbal request. The recipient of the letter seldom writes back; the person usually just stops the behavior.
3. Set your own boundaries: Say "NO" emphatically and clearly when you are asked to go places, do things, and respond to questions, or engage in situations that make you uncomfortable. Do not worry about offending the other person or hurting his or her ego. Take care of yourself first.
4. Be aware of situations and people who may harm you: Don't ignore other's warnings about particular people or social settings. Acknowledge their concern for you and for themselves.
5. Take a colleague or sympathetic senior into confidence so that you have reliable witness to stand up for you when it comes down to your word against his.
6. Don’t confuse the company with the individualJust because one person has made life miserable for you, it doesn't mean that the company is at fault.
7. If those in authority, act against him swiftly and firmly, then absolve them of blame and move on.

How do I Report Crime?

How do I Report Crime?

You may be either a victim of crime or a witness to the crime. Well, it is not easy to come forward. But, if no one reports crime to the Police, criminals commit more crime, damage more property and finally justice is denied forever.

It’s also important to report crime for your own sake as getting a crime number from the police will trigger the investigation.

How to report a crime?
  • Alert the nearest policeman on the street
  • Nothing like reporting crime to the policeman on the street directly!. This will ensure the quick reaction, sense of security in you and swift investigation.

If you do not see any policeman, then…
Dial 100 (Any Phone) or Dial 112 (from your Mobile) or 040 - 27852333 or 23261166
In an emergency or if you are facing immediate threat, dial 100 and ask for the police help. Information you give will be passed on to the local police without any delay. It’s always better if you give your contact number to the control room to guide the police patrols.

Going to your local police station :
At the police station you will be asked to provide details of the crime and make a statement about the facts of the case. Depending on the contents of your complaint, Police will register a case under relevant sections. If you find the response at the police station inadequate, you can always contact divisional and zonal officers. Contact us

You’ll receive a FIR Number (crime number) that you can quote to find out about the progress of your case and to make any kind of claim.

Reporting a crime anonymously :

It is not compulsory that you should give your identity when you report crime to police.

You can always convey the details you know about crime by dialing to local police station or write letters to police officers or send emails
   Please Remember :
  • By giving information about crime you will not be called to Police station as Witness
  • You will not be made as a witness against your consent
  • Even if you are a victim, your details will not be made public by police against your  will.
