TCS receives notice over 'unfair' employee transfer practices; company 'stops giving salaries'

The Maharashtra Labour Department has issued a notice to Tata-owned TCS over allegations of unfair employee transfer practices.

According to media reports, the notice was issued following a complaint by the Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate (NITES), a Pune-based union.

NITES said it received more than 300 complaints claiming that TCS was forcing more than 2,000 employees to relocate to different cities without adequate notice or consultation, causing hardship for the employees and their families.

The notice called for a joint meeting between the complainant and TCS management to address the issue.

TCS had allegedly threatened employees with disciplinary actions if they failed to comply with the transfer orders. The company is accused of unethically stopping the salaries of employees who opposed these forced transfers.
