As we all know that a new act has been established in 2013 for prevention if sexual harassment activity at the workplace. Since Annual Return is required to filed with the concerned authority I am unable to find out the due date of filing the same. Can any one tell me what is the due date of filing the annual return under Sexual Harassment at Workplace Act, 2013.
**Applicability:** All establishments whether organized or unorganized. **Constitution of Internal Complaint Committee** Every employer of workplace where at least 10 women employees are employed, shall by order in writing constitute a committee known as “Internal Complaint Committee” . **Constitution of Local Complaints Committee** Every District officer shall constitute in the District a committee known as “Local Complaints Committee” to receive complaints of sexual harassment from establishment where internal complaint committee has not been constituted due to having less than 10 workers or if complaint is against the employer himself. **Procedure for Complaint under the Act** 1.

Note : In case of a Registered Company which submits its annual report to the ROC, the only thing that need to be mentioned is the number of cases filed and the number of disposals in the Annual Report itself. In other cases where there is no requirement of filing Annual Reports, the same information need to be send to the District Officer. **Therefore there is no due date specified for filing the annual return under Sexual Harassment at Workplace Act, 2013 .**
