Wipro Lays off 452 employees

Days after Wipro confirmed that it let go of 452 freshers for performing poorly on internal assessments after delaying onboarding, an employee organization has said it will be submitting a complaint to the labor department for an inquiry.

The Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate (NITES), a union of IT employees, said that it ‘strongly condemns the unethical layoffs done by Wipro.’

“For a year these employees were struggling to join the company despite clearing interviews, training, assessments and internships. The company has not paid a single rupee to these employees and fired them illegally. We will be submitting a complaint to the Labour Authorities to conduct an inquiry,” NITES President Harpreet Singh Saluja said.
