The technology major discovered an effort to use letters from fraudulent firms to obtain offers
Accenture’s India unit has fired employees found to have used fake documents and experience letters to obtain jobs at the firm. It is unclear how many employees were impacted.
Similar thing has been done by cognizant .
After forged documents and fake experience letters led to the layoffs at Accenture India, a similar event has reportedly led to sacking of employees at Cognizant India. As per an ETNow report, Cognizant India has said that it had a 6 per cent involuntary attrition in Q2.
The numbers of layoffs due to failed background checks and moonlighting have increased over the last few months. As companies resume work-from-office, background checks are increasing, making such incidents more common.
The report adds that attrition in this sense can be thought of as a euphemism for sacking. Even Cognizant India’s head Rajesh Nambiar said that there was high involuntary attrition due to failed background checks, as per the report.
Along with faked letters and documentation, other companies including Twitter, Meta, and others have also seen large-scale layoffs. Although corporations have fired workers largely to save costs, this has had an impact on thousands of people who lost their employment quickly.
