This really forces me to question - Are HR practices safe enough especially in industries where unions prevail... Perhaps the fear created by such incidents (the one shared, the fate of HR of Maruti Suzuki last year or so) prevents young professionals to take up IR or HR related jobs in manufacturing sector where unions prevail...
The increasing concern is are we doing anything to prevent it?
If someone is not performing the job and if the HR confronts the same, is it the HR's fault? Or is it his duty to report the righteous? How often do we fail to realize that HR too have their own limitations are bound by their duties which ought to be performed....
Just a food for thought....

Also, as concern as risk and security then I would say nothing is 100% safe but we can take precautions by employing educated people with good background and have enough security at our manufacturing plants as well as other divisions.

Secondly, we can employ educated people for certain designation. But when it comes to labor, they are cheaper when they have zero or very basic education. Hence the problem.
Risk - Yes, nothing is 100% risk free and safe, but measures ought to be taken to try and educate employees (labor to be very specific) that what we do as HR/IR personnel is a part of our duty.

We need to give our ears more to listen to their grouses and concerns. If workers are aware that HR/IR managers are fair, justiciable and have the workers interest at heart, they will accept the decisions of the management.
