Maharashtra labour department sends notice to TCS over transfers

Maharashtra labour department sends notice to TCS over transfers

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading IT major, is under scrutiny by the Maharashtra labor department following a notice it received over alleged employee transfer practices. The Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate (NITES), representing IT workers, filed a complaint against TCS, accusing the company of engaging in unethical transfer practices.

According to NITES, they have received over 300 complaints from TCS employees who claim that the company has been compelling more than 2,000 workers to relocate to different cities without proper notice or consultation. Harpreet Singh Saluja, the President of NITES, stated that TCS used threats of disciplinary actions against employees who resisted these transfers. Moreover, the company has reportedly halted the salaries of employees opposing these forced relocations.

In response to these allegations, NITES strongly condemns what it perceives as illegal tactics employed by TCS, insisting that the company is coercing employees into accepting transfers or resigning from their positions. Saluja has urged the Ministry of Labour and Employment to investigate TCS’s actions thoroughly and implement appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and well-being of IT workers.

This is not the first time TCS has faced scrutiny from labor authorities. In October, the Ministry of Labour and Employment in Maharashtra took notice of onboarding delays at TCS and issued a notice to the company. NITES had previously approached the ministry regarding onboarding delays and filed a complaint, advocating for the over 2,000 lateral recruits affected by unexpected delays in their onboarding process by TCS.

While these labor disputes unfold, TCS’s CEO and MD, K Krithivasan, addressed employees with a message forecasting the significance of Generative AI in the coming years. Despite these technological advancements, the company finds itself embroiled in a labor-related controversy that underscores the challenges faced by IT workers in the industry. The outcome of the investigation by the Ministry of Labour and Employment will shed light on the veracity of the allegations against TCS and determine the necessary measures to uphold the rights and fair treatment of IT professionals.
