Amazon India has been asked to appear before the deputy chief labor commissioner in Bengaluru on Wednesday by the Union Labour Ministry. The change happened in response to a grievance made by the staff union Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate (NITES) NITES wrote to Union Labor Minister Bhupender Yadav claiming that Amazon employees had been fired for no reason. The change follows a complaint Amazon was accused of breaking labor regulations in by the employee union Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate (NITES).
The union pushed for an investigation, arguing that employees had been handed a voluntary separation program with a November 30 deadline to finish the procedure.
According to NITES, many people’s livelihoods are in jeopardy as a result of this. The premise of the Industries Disputes Act was that an employer could not be fired without government approval.
According to NITES President Harpreet Saluja, the union hoped that the workers will receive justice. Additionally, he said that the government will abandon the immoral voluntary separation policy proposed by Amazon. This move by the authorities has given the workers a sense of relief. According to insiders, Amazon is planning to terminate up to 10,000 employees as of now now and keep doing so until 2023.
