At a workplace, certain issues may arise at any point or period of time. Employee issues are the most significant among these.
Employee issues can mar the working environment of a company, resulting in poor quality products and high expenses. Therefore, a company should be very careful about its employees. It should ensure a safe and healthy workplace with on time remuneration or salary payment. Furthermore, it should take care about the other employee benefits and problems frequently faced by them (employees). It is unfortunate that there are many companies that don’t think about their employees. Their sole goal is to earn more. According to them, “Business is business. There is no room for humanity and social responsibility.” They care for nothing and remain indifferent to the pains and pleasure of their employees.
There are many Indian KPO, BPO, and IT companies driven by this motto. Even they don’t pay their employees on time and in many cases, they stop paying their employees permanently without giving them any notice. To be more precise, they don’t say anything and never forbid their employees to come to the office. They only stop paying their employees with the notion that they will not come gradually due to nonpayment. Consequently, lots of complaints started coming from the various part of India till the last year. Only in the northern India, the number reached more than a lakh.
Besides, a Hyderabad-based software firm named Serene Solutions came under the scanner when seven employees lodged a police complaint against the firm for not paying them salaries.
To combat with the situation, the labor ministry came forward with new amendments and some modifications (in the employment laws of India) for the employees working in private and non-pensionable public sectors. To monitor all these complaints many consumer forums and district forums were established under Consumer Protection Act-1986. The consumer forums ensure all provisions required to safeguard the interests of (employers and employees). These offer them many privileges applicable to Labour and Employment Laws in India. Furthermore, many consumer forums, state and central labor commissions have launched many online complaint portals to register employee problems over the internet.
