New Delhi: This is like Trump effect, but that is felt on Indian land. About 6000 Indian employees were reportedly illegally fired by Cognizant Technologies in order to have more US talent hired in the upcoming months.
The Forum for IT Employees (FITE) has expressed the concern of the techies fired in Chennai. The techies approached the state's labour department to act against the IT giant's illegal act to terminate Indians.
It is learnt that the IT giant gave poor rating in their annual appraisal reviews to the Indians to facilitate their removal and to see that they do not get an on site assignments or projects in US.
FITE claims that over 200 people approached them with the grievances against the company. Tech Mahindra and Wipro too following the suit. Many Indian families will be left in lurch if this layoffs continue by the IT companies.
