"Unethical transfer practices": IT Workers Body To Center Against TCS


NITES claimed that TCS is “putting its employees through unnecessary hardship” (representatively)

New Delhi:

IT workers’ union NITES (Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate) has approached the Ministry of Labor and Employment against alleged “unethical transfer practices” by Tata Consultancy Services (TCS).

An email to TCS seeking comment on the matter did not elicit a response.

NITES has issued a statement saying it received more than 180 complaints that TCS has allegedly “systematically forced” more than 2,000 employees to move to different cities without proper notice or consultation, causing immense hardship to them and their families.

Pune-based NITES claimed that the company has warned the employees that failure to comply with the transfer instructions will result in disciplinary action.

“We are deeply concerned about the unethical transfer practices of Tata Consultancy Services… We have urged the Ministry of Labor and Employment to investigate the actions of TCS and take appropriate measures to protect IT employees from such unethical practices,” NITES President Harpreet Singh Saluja said .

NITES alleged that TCS is “putting its employees through unnecessary hardship and violating their rights”.

It urged the Ministry of Labor and Employment to investigate the company’s transfer practices to determine whether they violate labor laws and, if so, “take appropriate action” against the company.

“We urge the Ministry of Labor and Employment to immediately take steps to investigate the transfer practices of TCS and take appropriate action against the company. We also request the ministry to formulate new policies and regulations to protect IT employees from unethical transfer practices,” NITES said in his letter to Labor and Employment Minister Bhupender Yadav.

NITES said it will continue to fight for the rights of IT workers and ensure that they are not subjected to unethical practices such as forced transfers.

NITES, which focuses its attention and actions on the protection of IT/ITES employees against various financial, legal, labor and social issues, said it represents the collective voice of IT professionals across the country.
