300 WIPRO Employees Face Axe For Moonlighting With Rivals
Bengaluru: Moonlighting for other companies has cost dear for 300 employees working for IT major Wipro as the leading IT firm terminated them
Company Chairman Rishad Premji revealed the development on Wednesday.
Speaking at the All India Management Association (AIMA) National Management Convention, Premji termed moonlighting is a complete violation of integrity “in its deepest form”.
“The reality is that there are people today working for Wipro and working directly for one of our competitors and we have actually discovered 300 people in the last few months who are doing exactly that,” he added.
The company has now terminated their employment for “act of integrity violation”.
Premji recently said that the concept of a second job in addition to the regular job is “plain and simple” cheating.
“There is a lot of chatter about people moonlighting in the tech industry. This is cheating — plain and simple,” he had tweeted.
