F.I.T.E (Forum for IT Employees) raised the flag when the IT organizations started forcing their employees to resign. The companies who initially announced that they were going to cut down their employee headcount have now backed up, as a result of continuous efforts and determination by F.I.T.E in getting employees’ rights and job back. Though IT organizations and their supporter, NASSCOM, claim that no terminations or layoffs happening, the support from employees proves otherwise.
As an evidence to the illegal terminations that is going on in the IT sector, few more affected employees file IDA 2A petition at the Labour Commissioner’s office on July 5th, 2017. Four employees from CTS, three from Syntel, and one employee who worked for HTC, submitted the petitions today. Two CTS employees had already file the petition to the Labour Department. Though the forced resignations and terminations slowed down by F.I.T.E’s tireless efforts, it’s still going on.
It is the rights of each employee to get their job back, and we assure that we will support the employees until there is an exploitation and violation of Labour rights by employers.
We thank the Labour Department for their continuous support to get employees their rights. We also thank the press and media teams for their efforts that helped the issue to get the required importance.
