NITES demands WFH for IT Employees

Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate #NITES has submitted an official request to Hon’ble CMOMaharashtra Uddhav Thackeray ji & Hon’ble Labour Minister Hasan Mushrif ji for issuing compulsory Work from Home guidelines to IT/ITeS/BPO/KPO companies in Maharashtra.
Recently many IT companies across the Maharashtra state have started forcing employees to resume work from office (email copies attached). Nearly 40% of employees have started working from office. Keeping in mind the recent outbreak of Omnicron variant of COVID-19 pandemic many employees working in the IT Industry are facing a difficult situation and are working in fear. Under previous lockdowns also the IT Industry has performed well, while employees were working from home. In such testing times, the rights of the employees ought to be protected by necessary orders and directions to the IT/ITeS/BPO/KPO companies by the Hon’ble Maharashtra Government. Companies like Google in Europe, Middle East and Africa has already delayed mandatory return to office. IT companies in India should also act responsibly & give priority to the safety of employees and their families. Considering the recent increasing number of COVID patients in Maharashtra the employees shouldn’t be forced to resume offices by the companies & should be allowed to work from home.
