Pune IT Firms Fires Employees 

System plus Technologies, an IT firm based out of Magarpattha, Pune has decided to fire 100 employees during the lockdown phase.More than 400 employees are working for this company.Recently, HR sent out a mail to employees, stating that an important US-based client has terminated their outsourcing contract, and as a result, employees will be fired

A 30-year old employee said, This is a forced decision and no employee’s choice was considered. I have been put on a notice but I don’t know for how long and if I will get salary. It is difficult to sustain in these difficult times and I have no clue as to what is written ahead for us,”Maharashtra Labour Commissioner, Dr.Mahendra Kalyankar has issued a directive on March 20th, stating that no company shall terminate any employee during the lockdown, and this action by System plus Technologies is a clear violation of this directive.

The IT Employee Union is in touch with Govt officials, and they want such practice of firing employees to stop. Indian IT Employees and their families are facing tremendous trauma as the IT and ITES companies are not cooperating with the Government directions. We are in touch with Collector of Pune Shri Naval Kishore Ram to file an FIR against the companies not following Government’s directions under disaster management act.

Vivek Mestri, Vice President of NITES-Maharashtra added, “National Information Technology Employees Sena-NITES is working for betterment and welfare of IT sector hereby wants to convey Employees/Workers working in these sectors to come forward and share with us if they face any issues pertaining to Salary, Job insecurity, Forceful resignation, illegal termination, harassment etc.”

National Information Technology Employees Sena NITES have submitted an official complaint to the Labour Commissioner Office Pune and has been continuously following up with Dy Labour Commissioner Shri Vikas Panvelkar to resolve the issue.
