The Labour Commissioner,
Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh.
Subject : Humiliation, mental torture, threatening and illegal termination of my job.
I am an employee of I Next (Jagran Prakashan Limited). I have joined the organization in October 2008 as Chief Visualiser. In 2012 I was promoted as Art Director. During my tenure I have worked for various verticasl of Jagran Prakashan Limited, like Jagaran Coffee Table Book, Jagran Josh, City Plus, redesign the newspaper, conduct workshop etc.
In Feb 2014 honorable Supreme Court has asked all media house to implement the recommendation of Majithia Wage Board and to pay its arrear that has been accrued from November 2011 in four equal installments during the current financial year of 2014-15. But management is not willing to give the benefit of wage board recommendation to employees. Since wage board recommendations are applicable to the print media only, organisation has changed department of editorial colleague and shifted them to the web portal. Even in some cases joining date has been reduced to 11 months earlier to avoid the arrear.
Employees are afraid of the power of media house owner, administrative influence, money power, political connection and goons’ as well. They are scared to raise their voice under the threat of losing their job and life.
I am protesting this unprofessional and unethical move of organisation from very beginning. In retaliation organisation has changed my department from Editorial to Production (DTP) and my designation is demoted from Art Director to Chief Graphic Designer. When I protest this undue move or management, organisation has threatened to destroy me and to face the dire consequences. At last organisation has forced to sign the relieving letter, which I denied. Despite this organisation has terminated my services.
This is a great blow to my career and dignity. Apart from this future of my children are on stake. My daughter is pursuing a professional course from Pune and my son is studying in graduation course and both are financially depend on me.
Since I don’t have other source of income, I can’t pay house rent and would have to vacate it.
This is not just humiliating, but the defamation of honorable Supreme Courte also.
You are requested to look into the matter, please save me from the exploitation of the organisation.
With best regards
Sushil Kumar Rana
