Hexaware Employees In Mumbai Start Receiving Their Pending Salaries; This Is How It Happened
Last month, we had reported that a leading IT firm from Mumbai: Hexaware Technologies, had stopped giving salaries to hundreds of employees as part of their cost-cutting process.
Several hundred were fired as well.
But now, things are changing.
We have received confirmed reports that Hexaware Technologies has now started giving salaries to their employees.
How did this happen?
Good Work By NITES: Hexaware Employees Start Receiving Salaries
We have received information that due to the continuous and relentless work done by NITES, Hexaware employees have now started receiving their salaries which was earlier withheld from the employees citing coronavirus impact.
As of now, we have received evidence that upto 80 employees from Hexaware’s Mahape campus have received their pending salaries, and we hope that the trend is visible across all other campuses.
National Information Technology Employees Senate or NITES is a nonprofit organization, which is dedicated to protect IT employees’ interests.
Expressing his happiness, Harpreet Saluja, General Secretary, National Information Technology Employees Senate NITES said, “National Information Technology Employees Senate NITES is working extensively for the welfare and rights of IT and ITES employees. We had raised a complaint against Hexaware Technologies at the Labour Commissioner Office as the company on 11th May had informed around 600 employees from Navi Mumbai that they will not be getting salaries for the month of May 2020. We would like to bring to your notice that we have received confirmation from the employees that they have today received the salaries which they were denied earlier and have appreciated our efforts to help the affected employees under such difficult circumstances.”
What Had Actually Happened?
We had reported that around 200 Hexaware employees have been fired, and around 600 employees are not receiving their salaries, during the 1st phase of lockdown.
This was clearly against the Govt rules, which mandated that no employer will stop salaries of any employees, or fire them during the lockdown.
Based on the complaint by NITES, the Labor Commissioner office had issued a notice to Hexaware.
There are more than 19,000 employees working for this company.
We will keep you updated, as we receive more information.
