Press Release : Stop Tech Mahindra’s Illegal Layoff of 1,500 employees

This entry is part 2 of 9 in the series Tech Mahindra Layoff

We call upon Tech Mahindra IT employees to resist resignations forced upon them by their employer. Appraisal system and forced resignations violate Indian labour law. IT/BPO companies don’t have the right to terminate employees without due process. (Otherwise they won’t even bother with forced resignations). If any of the Tech Mahindra employees submitted resignation and are under notice period, we ask them to revoke resignation immediately.
