Consider the way in which Gowri Kumaran was treated by her employer. She applied for a job as machine operator in a radio assembly factory. The employer offered her the job and said that her contract of employment would be sent to her after one month's trial. After one month, Gowri received her wages but was surprised to see that her wage rate was much less than expected. She was also earning much less than other workers doing the same work. There had been several deductions from her wages which she did not understand. She did not receive a contract of employment as had been promised. Gowri had complained to her supervisor that there were some loose electrical wires on her machine but no action had been taken. She worked 10 -hour shifts with only one break. Gowri decided to join a trade union but when the manager heard about this he called her into his office. He told her that her work was unsatisfactory and she was no longer required. Gowri was very upset about the way she had been treated. She asked for your advice, as her legal adviser, on what she should do. What might be the advantages to employers from treating their staff well?
