Greetings. Posting on behalf of a friend. He works for a private bank. Charges are levied against him that he hired a person & gave undue favour. He is currently suspended. Truth is that no less than 7-8 people were involved in hiring, process was followed, the candidate was interviewed by senior leaders & offer letter was given by HR. The charge is that my friend did not disclose that he knew the candidate & the candidate was his referral and hence my friend should not have been part of the hiring process.
My friend told very clearly before the hiring process that he knows him & he was involved in the hiring process as directed by his manager. He has emails on this topic. He did not even claimed any referral bonus. Can a company terminate someone on a non-issue like this? Can he go to court or labor court? What is the process of going to labor court? Does he stands a chance to re-claim his grace? Thanks for your help in advance. Kind Regards. BSaxena
