Hopefully a valid query !!!
Allow me to illustrate the following as a prelude: I started my working life in 1957. The general modus operandi was to give to the employee a letter of appointment which contained terms and conditions of the contract, including the salary.
I may have changed employers 4 - 5 times during the 45 years that followed. Every time it was the same procedure viz. interview, LOA........off to work.......until I retired fifteen years ago. Most of those years I worked outside of India. But I've been living in India since my retirement.
Today, it's our grandchildren who seek employment. And it is here that my query enters the stage.
Is it common today in our country for companies to employ youngsters (after giving them training as interns in the same company), accepting them as full-fledged members of the staff............BUT............ not giving them a Letter of Appointment, not fixing their salaries and, most of all, not even paying them for several months?
This is against all "work-ethics" and against any "work culture" that I've known in my younger years. WOULD APPRECIATE COMMENTS AND VIEWS OF MEMBERS ON THIS SUBJECT, Thanks!!! more
