Infosys Delays Onboarding for Over 2 Years, NITES Demands Government Action

Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate (NITES) has urged the Ministry of Labour & Employment to investigate Infosys for repeatedly delaying the onboarding of over 2,000 campus recruits. These delays, ongoing for more than two years, have caused significant hardship for the affected graduates. Many graduates had accepted Infosys’s offer letters in good faith, turning down other opportunities. Now facing financial strain and uncertainty due to the lack of income and a clear onboarding timeline, these young professionals feel Infosys has broken their trust. NITES is calling for the Ministry’s intervention to ensure Infosys fulfills its obligations to these new hires. This includes:

Compensation: Full salary payments for the period during which onboarding has been delayed.

Employee Assistance: Immediate access to Infosys’s employee assistance program to address the mental and emotional strain caused by the delay.

Alternative Employment: If onboarding remains infeasible, Infosys must actively help these graduates find suitable alternative employment opportunities within the company.

The future careers and well-being of these young professionals are at stake. NITES urges the Ministry to take swift action to protect these employees and ensure they are not unfairly penalized for Infosys’s decision.
