Stop illegal retrenchment in Cognizant: KITU

The reports on large scale layoffs are coming from ‘Cognizant’ in the name of ‘effectively managing workforce utilisation’. Thousands of employees all over India are going to be the victims of this. Karnataka State IT/ITeS Employees Union (KITU) strongly condemns this illegal and inhuman decision taken by the management of Cognizant.

Several victimized employees approached KITU, and Union is initiated legal battle against the Cognizant management for this illegal action.

According to the Labour Laws, Companies that employs more than 100 employees need to obtain approval from the Labour department in order to execute layoffs. Rebranding a layoff by arguing that employees voluntarily resigned when they were, in fact, forced to resign, is also against the law. KITU urges all the affected employees to refuse to resign if asked to do so by the company.

Karnataka State IT/ITeS Employees Union extends all support to the affected employees of Cognizant and urges the company to respect the law of the land. KITU demands urgent intervention from the government to this matter and request to take stricter actions against the management who violated the labour laws.

KITU opened a Help Desk to support the affected employees of Cognizant
