I am one of the senior employees in Tech Mahindra. I was awarded many times as the best performer. I have decade +experience in Tech Mahindra.
For a couple of years, There was no appraisal hike given in Tech Mahindra for senior employees. This year appraisal was planned.
Last month end
There was a shock to me when I saw the appraisal rating. I was rated as low performer…
I was promised by my manager and IBU head that they will give me good hike. I was working like anything Saturday and Sunday, Day and night as well..
State of mind
After seeing the rating , I was totally upset, There were loads of thoughts crossing in my mind.
That how am going to tell this to my family, how am going to manage the loans , what kind of job am going to do in future. Everything unravelled because of the sudden shock from given low rating.
My colleagues were simply questioning about work related things, I was just simply giving excuses to manage the situation because 2nd thought on my rating and personal commitments. It was unbearable situation to work when you came to know that organisation is going to send you out by saying the rating reason.
I was not in a position to discuss with everyone. However discussed with my manager, he was also unhappy in diplomatic way, requesting me to share my profile with him for some external position. He said there is nothing to change anything from his side and everything decided by management. He apologized to me and told me that I don’t deserve for this rating.
However I raised the grievances in the tool for my rating.
After I had the discussion with my manager, my depression level went high. I applied for one week leave. Just to mention here that this was the 2nd one week leave after my marriage in my overall decades+ experience. I leave it to the readers to imagine t how i had dedicated my life to my job.
After the leave
I got a call from HR about my grievance discussion. I did explain once again about all my achievements with respective HR panel. They wanted me to wait till they come back.
NDLF introduced by my friend.
After two days of my grievance discussion.
I got call from HR, they asked me to meet location HR at his place. I met them and they connected with me to my unit HR. My HR said that , today is your last working because no change in the grievance. They have also shown me the Agreement bond and two month gross salary of Demand draft.
I refused to take their order, I told them that , I want to work , I didn’t get the justification on my achievements from the panel side. On what basis the panel rejected my request. There was nothing about it from the HR end. Simply they have asked me to confirm by tomorrow..
After couple of days..
Again I got a call from HR, They wanted me to meet location HR head. I met them, Again they connected the call with my unit HR head. Again they wanted me to elaborate about achievements. I explained everything again. They said again, they will have a discussion with my manager and head and will come back.
I am waiting for justice
I am still waiting for the justice.
If I had not become aware of NDLF, I would not have learnt about the rights of employees. I would have gone out from this company and will be a jobless person today.
I will fight for justice with NDLF.
Fight for justice still continues..
Feel free to write and express yourself. Otherwise, others will not know what is happening. Awareness gives strength to fight for rights.
Be aware of NDLF and your rights.
