    Personal driver of company MD claims to be employee of the organization and creating problems for the same

    I work as an HR in a small software company. We have around 2000 employees. For all higher position company has provided the car and they have their own personal drivers. Our MD driver was taking very indiscipline in his work nature. So he removed from job. This driver has given complaint to driver union claiming himself the employee of the company and has been terminated without any notice. We are getting lots of trouble from this driver union. What action can be taken in this case as an HR of the company? Please suggest.

    Hi..This driver has no right to trouble you as he was removed from the company due to his own bad record and its not anyone's fault but his for his bad performance and subsequent removal from job..

    As an HR of the company its certainly your duty to keep your company away from such trouble..So you call the head of this driver's union and tell him that how this driver from removed from his job due to his bad performance and its not your fault..Also he is certainly not an employee of this company but only a driver to the MD..

    If the union still doesnt agree the best you can do is to tell that driver to serve his notice period and then leave..Or if you want to be really strict file a case against him regarding this trouble from driver proving he is not an employee of this company..

    Do your best..Best of luck and Thanks a lot

    Hi friend

    Firstly you should have been careful and seen to it that you give the driver prior warning before terminating his services..You should have informed him earlier and given prior notice to avoid such trouble..Ya i know according to you he should have realised that his indiscipline would have cost him his job and he should have been more careful..Also i dont think you consider him to be an employee of the company but being the driver of the MD of the company he is certainly your responsibility..

    But anyways the damage has been done now and you should see to it that everything gets solved amicanly without any of the parties having to suffer..So you try to appease the driver union and tell them that the driver was indisciplined and should have tried to improve...Tell them you are ready to pay him the compensation for not warning him beforehand but will certainly not take him back..Yours is a big company and even if you give a little money to him it will not cost you much and also save your reputation..

    I think this is the best way to get out of this situation..Good luck..God Bless
