Infosys fires employee who made objectionable post on coronavirus, Bengaluru police files case
Infosys has terminated the services of an employee who made an objectionable comment on social media on spreading coronavirus. The IT giant had issued a statement that it would internally investigate the matter after several social media users had flagged the post.
On Thursday, Infosys took note of the social media post by an employee who was urging people to go out on the streets and sneeze in public to spread COVID-19.
The company said in a statement on March 28: "Infosys has completed its investigation on the social media post by one of its employees and we believe that this is not a case of mistaken identity. The social media post by the employee is against Infosys’ code of conduct and its commitment to responsible social sharing. Infosys has a zero tolerance policy towards such acts and has accordingly, terminated the services of the employee."
The Bengaluru police has also registered a case against the individual under Section 505 of IPC, which deals with publishing or circulating content that can cause fear or alarm the public.
