READ ON SOCIAL MEDIA TOO

A Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) employee was allegedly suspended after they reported a security issue, according to a Reddit post. The employee claims they were suspended for reporting that the manager allegedly instructed employees to use their “personal laptops” and was “sharing login credentials”. 

The user, further in their post, mentioned feeling frustrated because they were suspended despite TCS reportedly having a policy to protect whistleblowers. They revealed that the “HR and managers won’t help me” because of “poor relations” and asked the Reddit community for advice on how to handle the situation.

A user suggested raising the issue on LinkedIn and tagging higher officials of the Tata group, not just TCS, as the alleged actions go against the Tata code of conduct. They advised, “Spread this like wildfire on X, LinkedIn and other social media platforms.”

Another user advised using the company’s escalation matrix to address the issue. (An escalation matrix is a step-by-step guide for addressing and resolving issues within a company by taking them to higher levels of authority). The user suggested, “Make it clear that you intend to go to the top of the matrix and so each level that refuses to comply goes under the bus.” They further mentioned that the top level of Tata Group takes policies seriously, and encouraged taking action against those who disregard them. They also recommended considering other job opportunities and being prepared to switch if needed.
