If we all were shocked by what is going on in Cognizant (CTS), where 1000s of employees are forced to resign by HR, things get worse by the day. Now CTS HR has resorted to threatening illegal forgery to get what they are after – sending out xxxx number of employees within specified time frame.
Read excerpts from employees conversation
1. “Today I had the discussion again with HR..same thing..asking to resign..when I said no, she told me they will auto generate it and will give discharge letter not release letter..and with this I won’t be getting job anywhere. There is anything as such discharge letter?
“Can you ask HR what she means by auto generate? Is she meaning termination?”
“She never used the word termination.. She told that they will deal with it in their own way..they will give discharge certificate instead of released letter.. Auto generate resignation means you are made to opt for the second option forcefully.”
“Is that not forgery?”
“Yeah.. But tat s Wat they do if yo don put resignation yourself..Yo will receive a mail tat resignation is auto generated. Is that a correct way to do? Whether any other company has done like this? Is that legal?”
2. “One of my friends said that hr had offered him the same 2 options. N he selected the 4 months pay option. Now hr says the company policy has changed n he will be given only 2 months salary.”
3. “I heard from one of my colleague that his friend refused to resign and so they auto generated resignation and now he s serving notice. These people will do anything to get rid of us it seems..”
“Ask him to talk to lawyer. If he can vouch for it, it can be a forgery complaint. This is very bad…pucca cheating… we need to complain to law dept or police. The affected person shd do that.”
This shows the levels to which corporate HR stoops. No heed to labour laws, no respect to the rights of employees, not even hesitant to resort to criminal acts.
