Termination of Employees Exceeding 50 numbers in Gross difference of Govt

Advisory /Order by Teleperformance Global Services Pvt Ltd, Gurugram

Dear Sir,

On 20th March 2020, Ministry of Labour & Employment – Government of India had clearly advised all employers not to terminate any employee from job or not to reduce their wages. Again on 29th March Government of India vide order No 40 -3/2020-DM-I(A) of Home Secretary, GOI has issued additional directions under Section 10(2)(i) of the Disaster Management Act 2005 which clearly directs that all the employers shall make payment of wages of their workers at their workplace on the due date, without any deduction for the period their establishments are under closure during the lockdown.

But unfortunately many employees are facing salary cut, job termination or unpaid forced leaves. On 24th March Fareportal India Pvt Ltd, has terminated more than 500 employees from its Gurugram office and on 10th April Teleperformance Global Services Pvt Ltd, has served a notice of termination to more than 50 employees to its Gurugram office.

The All India IT and ITES Employees’ Union (AIITEU) strongly condemns this kind of retrenchment or salary cut during the lock down period or after that. We believe that all the MNCs or other companies must extend their support to their employees during this crisis. The AIITEU demands your immediate intervention for cancellation of all job termination by Fareportal India Pvt Ltd and Teleperformance Global Services Pvt Ltd, and to reinstate the employees with a proper compensation for mental harassment
and ill-treatment. We also request you to arrange some initial relief on immediate basis for the employees of Fareportal India Pvt Ltd, which will help them to recover from mental distress and helpless condition.

We will provide contact number and location of employees if needed. Address and contact number of the Gurugram office are given below:

The violation of instruction under Disaster Management Act 2005 by Fareportal India Pvt Ltd, and Teleperformance Global Services Pvt Ltd, should be deemed as a punishable offence under section 188 of the Indian Penal Code (45 of 1860). We solicit your immediate intervention so that these IT majors can be restrained from unfair labour practices amidst in this worst ever national crisis. We are afraid, if these type of issues are not addressed strictly then mass retrenchment will be a trend for the MNCs in grabbing profit, placing the workers to worst situation.
