I differ. Except the USA all other European and Japanese companies have strict laws against discriminatory firing of employees. In fact the laws there are much much in favour of the employees than India. The only thing is we are tolerating indiscipline where us they dont .

I dont think so as now the indian companies are no different in doing so as well..the bottomline to it all is keeping the company in profit being the utmost important thing for them to the CEO's of the present!!

Really? Try firing employees in Japan....or France.

If u fire too many Japanese workers as a Japanese boss, u'd be sort of expected to pay penance to the families of the unemployed by doin' hara kiri (ceremonial honor suicide). Or in France, u might find urself in ICU (intensive care unit) by an angry mob of pissed off workers. Well, in USSR, comrad Gorby tried the policy of firing workers after Perestroika, and te people responded by bringing down the country. Or try that in South Korea & see where life takes u. In Sweden, unless u pay 70% of salary unemployment grat fees on a quarterly basis, u get sent 2 prison as an MD.

So not all can just fire ppl as they wish. India is middle ground, but leaning more towards leissez faire policy. In India, u are expected to retain ur staff, because u pay a VERY less percent of corporate profits as salaries to them , and there is no mandatory percent profit reallocation quota 4 corporations & private sector in our law.
