Hi, i am/was working for an app based ecommerce company, and a few days back the whole team(abt 50 ppl) was called to office and it was announced that we all will no longer be working with the company from next day, and that they are shutting down the office. No intimation was given to us, although they did say they will settle our dues of notice pay etc., but they were giving a PDC which all of us refused to accept.

The co founders had themselves initiated discussion with our team to reach a settlement, they even asked for what according to us employees would be required settlement(severance package). We promptly reverted with the expected settlement in this case and how to go ahead with the discussions. Their replies were affirmative and they asked us to name a representative who will discuss with them for the team.

After that they did not reply further after 2-3 mails, and next time they said HR will take this forward.

Next day (saturday) we get mail from HR that either we can resign and they will process FNF acc to the offer letter. or they will terminate us by monday.
we were not even given one days notice for this.
The offices have been locked and nobody is allowed to enter.

I just need to know whether we as affected employees have any power legally in this case and what should we do to take this forward.

Hi Vivek,
You can approach the labour office prevailing your office location and can raise a complaint. As this is a layoff they have to undergo certain measures, failing so, can be intervened by the labour department.

You have to ask for the reason why they asked to resign, they can not remove without genuine reason and contact the labour officer and large the complaint.

Dear All,

I am alone fighting with with cause of action. The remedy is PIL (Public Interest Litigation) before Supreme Court of India to bring a specific legislation which governs the employment and working conditions of white color workers.

This is happening across India because, as of now, under the Indian legal regime, there is no specific legislation which governs the employment of white-collar workers. Primarily, none of the labour laws apply to them and their service conditions are governed by the respective employment contracts which contain all terms and conditions governing the employment. In the absence of any specific statue or principles governing employment of white-collar workers except the basic provisions applicable under the Indian Contract Act, 1872 and judicial precedents, regarding the legality and sanctity of the contractual termination provisions.

I have filed against Indian Drugs Pharmaceuticals Ltd, Department of Pharmaceuticals, Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilizers, Government of India in Patiala House court vide case no 201/2015 which supposed to move to Supreme Court of India invoking Jurisdiction under Article 32 of Constitution of India.

Stay fighting for generations.........................

Dear Vivek,
Agitate against this cause of action before Hon'ble Supreme Court of India invoking its jurisdiction under Article 32 of Constitution of India to enforce the Article 39 of Constitution of India in the form of PIL (Public Interest Litigation).
Do not waste your time? Don't look for here and there? All are waste of time. Hit the right place at right time to bring about substantial change.
Thanks & Regards,
