I had a conflict of opinion with my previous account manager in April 2018. He worked with HR team to fulfil his personal grudge and came up with an investigation by mid of June 2018. HR / HR Director of my employer took the complaints from multiple women against me, HR themselves collected evidences from my self. When I asked about the status of the investigation, they said that HR is getting new things coming up everyday and it takes time. When I sent an email finally to HR Director saying that I’d file a defamation suit against HR for this, he himself simply closed the investigation after a month (32 days).
When I questioned this, HR said that it was just a preliminary investigation and they are NOT bound to share any kind of information as neither a formal inquiry was initiated nor any action was taken against me. Neither ICC nor the committee constituted by employer were involved in the preliminary investigation at any point of time though HR had even collected evidences from me too, mentioning in emails that I’m under investigation for possible violation of prevention of sexual harassment act. Is this a breach of the Act? 13th October 2018
