Tata Technologies puts about 400 employees on the bench – Latest news


Tata Technologies has put a part of its employees on the bench after the current Covid-19 pandemic. The company said less than 400 employees had been put in the bank, on paid leave, followed by unpaid leave. “In response to the changed business environment, we are focused on making Tata Technologies an agile, responsive and flexible organization. Accordingly, we have taken several actions, including optimizing our bank resources, “said a spokesperson for Tata Technologies.

Employees continue in the company rolls and families will be covered by the company health insurance policy until the end of the year. The National Senate of Information Technology Employees (NITES) has filed a complaint on behalf of the employees with the Labor Commissioner in Pune, requesting him to take appropriate legal action against the company.

Harpreet Saluja, NITES general secretary, said employees had been asked to respond to an email reporting this situation before July 22. He requested that the company follow what Tata Group President Emeritus Ratan Tata had said about cutting employees in these unprecedented times that they are not a solution.

“In the event that they choose not to take the option, the legal redundancy process would be applicable. An overwhelming majority of such employees have opted for the paid / unpaid leave option, as it allows them to be listed and also covered by the Mediclaim group, which is important in current circumstances. We intend to return them to full-time positions if demand returns, as anticipated, “the spokesperson said.
