Wipro on Moonlighting : Wipro company has given coconuts to 300 employees as they were found to be working with a competitor company while working in Wipro. Wipro Chairman Rishad Premji has given information about this. He said the action was taken after 300 of the company’s employees were found to be working with one of its competitors at the same time.
Rishad Premji has strongly opposed moonlighting. While sticking to his statement, he said that moonlighting is completely unethical. Speaking at the All India Management Association’s National Management Convention, Rishad Premji said that while the actual sacked employees were working for Wipro today, they were directly working for one of our competitors. We’ve found 300 people in the past few months who were doing just that.
Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate opposes the decision
Meanwhile, after this decision, NITES (Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate NITES) President Harpreet Singh Saluja has expressed his displeasure over this decision. Saluja said that it is disappointing that Wipro has sacked around 300 employees in the name of moonlighting. Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate condemns this unethical act of NITES organization. We have appealed to these employees to come forward and join us as we gear up for a legal battle against the illegal clauses mentioned in the offer letters of IT employees.
He added that clauses mentioned in offer letters and employment contracts must be legally reviewed by the judiciary. Arbitrary dismissal of employees is unethical and illegal and NITES Union will leave no stone unturned to get justice for the aggrieved employees.
What exactly is moonlighting?
Moonlighting has been the talk of the town for the past few days, but it’s not exactly new. This has been going on since before. Moonlighting means the work assigned to you at the workplace. So let’s say your job is 10 to 5 and you complete it. But anything else you do outside is called moonlighting.
That means moonlighting is defined as any effort you make after the job to earn extra money that the company is not aware of. As the name implies, moonlighting refers to work done under the light of the moon or other work done at night or other times outside normal working hours.
