Cognizant Employees & F.I.T.E files petition to Hyderabad Labour Commissioner Today!

Layoffs has now become a common term among anyone working in Information Technology sectors. IT is viewed as one of the prestigious industries that helps anyone earn enough money to lead a decent life in cities. With that in mind, many people from various cities and rural areas studied hard and got a place in one or the other IT company. Monthly salary has become livelihood for most of these people.

The profit motive of the I.T companies to replace the highly paid experienced Employees with lesser experience/ low paid new recruits is leading to illegal terminations. Each company carries it out differently quoting various reasons including employee’s performance, or streamlining to meet customer demands.

As you all aware that one of the IT giants, Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS) is illegally terminating thousands of employees by forcing them to submit resignation. It is not few thousands of employees who are affected, but thousands of families. These affected employees, from CTS, are meeting the Labour Commissioner today to hand-over a petition demanding the Andra pradesh / Telangana State Government to intervene in the issue to safeguard the Employees’ rights.

We, F.I.T.E – Forum for I.T. Employees requesting you to send your news reporter to the location and cover the issue in your reputed media.

    All IT and ITES companies have NASSCOM to apply pressure on govt to get what they want but at the same time they dont like employees to form a union for collective bargaining.

    It’s time IT giants create Lay-off start up funds allocating a portion of QnQ revenue to eliminate this fiasco YOY. Give an option these affected to redefine their salary with slashed fixed and more variable. Paves way for new thinking and opportunity.. It’s times employers choose separation path only for those dishonest, unethical – rest aren’t bad to sustain n make a difference in their lives. Just simple intelligence and passion for employee’s well being is becoming a dearth, unfortunate.
