On 9th June, we had first reconciliation meeting with Lumbini Elite Solutions at Labour Commissioner’s office, Bannerghetta Road, Bangalore. The case was regarding non-payment of wages and firing without any process and letters.
As the meeting started, the company claimed that the petitioner was never the company’s employee citing that the petitioner had only offer letter and not appointment order. However, the company had created mail ID and FMNO for the petitioner well before he joined and the petitioner was allowed to enter the office premises unhindered during his tenure. The company on its response to the petition filed by FITE, tried to create a picture that the petitioner was unskilled, money minded and half month salary that was provided by the company was out of sympathy for the petitioner, since he had to relocate from Pune. FITE raised objections to the claims made by the company and gave our reasons. The Labour officer asked FITE to prepare the counter response petition and the next round of conciliation meeting has been scheduled on June 23, 2017
