TCS faces criticism for staff relocations; NITES calls for investigation

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has come under fire for relocating over 2,000 employees to different cities without providing adequate notice or consultation. The company has notified nearly 2,000 associate employees of their transfer, giving them only two weeks to relocate.

Employees have also been instructed to manage their own travel and lodging arrangements, with the promise of reimbursement at a later date. Employees claim that those who opposed the transfers are now facing repercussions, as the IT firm has limited their access to office systems.

The Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate (NITES), a new IT labour union, has received grievances from 180 members. More than 1,500 employees, according to NITES, are unwilling to relocate or comply with transfer orders. These transfers are common practise for associates during their training period. According to NITES, the majority of the associates who have received transfer notices have only one to two years of work experience.

TCS’ ‘unethical transfer practises’ have been condemned by NITES in a letter to the Ministry of Labour and Employment.

The president of NITES, Harpreet Singh Saluja, has expressed serious concerns about TCS’s unfair practises. As a result, the Senate has asked the Ministry of Labour and Employment to look into TCS’s actions and take the necessary steps to protect IT workers from such unethical practises.
