The CITU-affiliated West Bengal Information Technology Services Association on Thurday demanded police and administrative action against IT employers who were found cheating their employees.
Recently, the owners of an IT company Infogen Global were found cheating their employees as they allegedly hired trainees in phases and took Rs 50,000 from each as security deposit.
The monthly salaries of the old trainees were met from security deposits taken from the new ones. As these continued for some months, the owners found it impossible to manage the cycle and handed over cheques to the new trainees which bounced subsequently.
A spokesman of the association said that there were several IT companies which were cheating the employees in a similar way.
The spokesman said that the state government should look into the matter and take action against the offenders.
