The Maharashtra Labour Department has issued a notice to TCS regarding forced transfers.

The Maharashtra Labour Department has issued a notice to TCS regarding forced transfers.

The Maharashtra Labour Department sent a notice to Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) regarding a complaint about its IT company transfer practices.

The Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate (NITES), a group advocating for IT industry workers in India, has filed a complaint against TCS. The company is accused of transferring over 2,000 employees without proper consultation. As per the notice from the Maharashtra State Government Labour Department, TCS executives are requested to meet with department officials on 18th January 2024 to address the issue.

TCS has sent an email to some employees instructing them to move to Mumbai. The email stated that some employees had failed to report to the transferred branch within the specified 14 days, resulting in the company stopping their salaries immediately. In July 2023, NITES filed a complaint with the Labour Ministry claiming that TCS delayed onboarding for lateral recruits.

The company did not respond to an email, and its financial results for the third quarter of the 2023–24 fiscal year will be announced on 11th January 2024. NITES filed a complaint with Maharashtra’s Ministry of Labour and Employment, citing over 300 complaints alleging that TCS caused hardship by transferring employees without proper notice.

According to Harpreet Singh Saluja, president of NITES, the company threatened disciplinary action for non-compliance with transfers and has now halted salaries for employees opposing these forced relocations.

Following the slowdown of the coronavirus pandemic, TCS was one of the first IT companies to request employees to return to the office for five days a week. Subsequently, other IT companies such as Infosys and Wipro also mandated employees to be in the office for at least three days a week.
