Dear CitiHR Members,
I have facing one situation as below:
One of my family member works as Plant Head in private company (its partnership firm).
He got a stroke attack in company premises due to High BP. Company people admitted him at hospital.
They have not supported for financial help due to members has his personal mediclaim policy.
After paying hospital bill and submitted to insurance company, it sanctioned only 60% of total bill.
After 2 months, as per doctors and physiotherapist advice he started to go for work.
As per doctors and physiotherapist he is 90% OK. (A left hand finger has some strength issue).
In the beginning for 1.5 month he worked only half day, company not paid him for the same.
When he started full day working, company’s director asked him that he is now not capable for work as Plant Head,
because this position required lot of work pressure and he is not in position to handle it, and cut down his salary by 50%.
My relatives given other works to do, but he is not expert in it. After 4 months company given letter of 1 month notice
Period stating that his performance is not upto the marks, so they terminated him from job.
Now, my query is that is it ethical and legal?
My relatives is young 45 years old, his family depend on him. How can he survive without job?
Kindly suggest for the next action.
Thanks in advance
