Heavy rainfall, No commute / Red Alert - YOU HAVE TO COME TO OFFICE
In our project, the Project Leader asks their employees to apply leaves for the days when we had heavy rainfall in our entire Maharashtra state and Mumbai was completely stopped such that none amongst the local trains or public/private transport services were in function. There were absolutely no any means for the employees to commute to offices and if they somehow reached swimming across oceans not even thinking twice about their lives they were warned by other nearby staying employees to go back to their homes immediately to be safe. My understanding here was company is keeping their offices open to provide shelter to its employees who are stuck while they are away from their homes.
The PL or HR do not act upon or neither bother to mail from their laptops sitting at their homes to declare a public holiday nor do they send private helicopters to pick and drop their employees safe. They say that the delivery of a project is critical but deep down they all know that 1 day holiday won't make the company starve.
PL doesn't have guts to question the HR - why not a paid holiday be declare. Instead asks their employees to directly apply leaves and the PL also say to her employees - if someone talks with HR with this question then let the PL know what HR had to say.
We read the news that the governor, the minister of the state/country and even the Hitler says to stay back at homes. But this just leaves our Project leads with no humanity.
Is this the same in all organizations? How is the company getting benefited risking their employee's lives for they know they gotta pay huge amount to all the crying families out there!!!!
