A lot of IT/ITeS/BPO/KPO Companies in the country have initiated a drive of illegal mass termination of the employees, withholding of the salaries or illegal deduction of salaries in complete breach and violation of the directions & advisories issued by Central Government & various State Governments. The employers who are in dominant position are taking harsh decisions and unconscionable bargains with the employees. The employees are in no way responsible for the present pandemic lock down situation, but are at the receiving end. In the absence of issuance of any binding orders to the private companies, thousands of employees are losing their jobs & income daily, which will lead to an unprecedented economic situation – a situation that the country cannot afford. Salaries of several employees have also been withheld and deducted without any basis.
