Regular readers of Techgoss are well aware that a large number of our articles are crowd sourced. People send in tips, photos, story ideas and even articles. Many of our contributors have full times jobs in IT - ITES, and so prefer using a pseudonym. A Tipster who prefers a pseudonym OracleHindustan (he has asked us not to publish his full name) wrote in giving details of this excellent BM article about how an Oracle India whistle blower has been awarded substantial compensation
Whistle-blowers of the city and the country, take heart. There's justice for the tribe, even as Indian laws are still feeling their way on the issue. ‘It’s like sitting on a ticking time bomb’
Following a 30-month legal battle, a City Labour Court has ordered IT major Oracle to pay Rs 17.60 lakh as compensation to a Bangalore-based employee who was dismissed after he had raised his voice over alleged fire safety lapses at the workplace.
