Labor Ministry sent notice to Amazon on retrenchment, asking to appear today

E-commerce company Amazon India has come under the target of the Ministry of Labor for the retrenchment of employees. The Ministry of Labor has sent a summons to the company on the complaint of the employees' organization and called them to present their side. This American e-commerce company had talked about the layoff of 10,000 employees in the past and has started removing employees posted in many positions including engineers, and scientists.

Union Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate (NITES), an organization of technical employees, has said in a complaint sent to the Ministry of Labor that Amazon has not followed the rules in the matter of retrenchment of employees and has taken this step by breaking the labor law. The notice issued by the Ministry of Labor is signed by the Deputy Chief Labor Commissioner of Bangalore and the summons is given to the Indian representative of Amazon India, who has been called on Wednesday to present his side on the matter.

The issued notice states that Amazon's official himself or an authorized representative will have to be present at the Labor Department office with all the evidence and documents on a fixed time and day. Earlier, NITES had said in a complaint sent to Union Labor Minister Bhupendra Yadav that Amazon is pressurizing its employees to leave the company and an inquiry should be done into this matter. In an e-mail sent by Amazon to the employees, they have been given a deadline of November 30 to complete the separation process. This move of the company will have a serious impact on the family of the employees.
