A senior techie at the Wipro back office in London, Shreya Ukil, a 40-year-old Indian woman has claimed to have won a lawsuit in a British tribunal against the IT major for sacking her on the grounds of gender discrimination, unequal pay and victimisation. Wipro said that the tribunal has upheld the dismissal as appropriate and rejected claims of adverse cultural attitude towards women in the organisation. “Wipro leadership team, including its (then) chief executive T.K. Kurien, conspired to push Ukil out of her job and her role in Britain,” her lawyers Slater & Gordon said in a joint statement from London. “Ukil was victimised by Wipro’s leadership for speaking up about sex discrimination, unequal pay and a culture of sexism,” the statement asserted. “The court also ruled in my favour on sex discrimination, victimisation and unfair dismissal,” Ukil reiterated. “The tribunal found that I was a victim of acts of sexism and racism, as the company did not upheld the well-founded complaints of discrimination against me,” Ukil said. “The court verdict is in public domain. There is no out-of-court settlement,” she affirmed. “Compensation (referred to as ‘remedy’) will be decided at a later date,” Ukil noted. By Premji
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has on Wednesday admitted for the first time that the odd-even scheme cannot be a long-term "remedy" to air pollution. Claiming the second phase of the odd-even scheme "very successful", Kejriwal said the government will soon come out with a separate policy for cab and bus aggregators which will enable more taxis and buses on the roads. "We have to strengthen the public transport system in the coming days and we are working on it. Odd-even cannot be a long-term remedy," the Chief Minister said while addressing a "thanks giving" ceremony to celebrate the success of the second phase of the scheme. "We have announced a bus aggregator policy. We hope the buses from the private sector will ply on the roads. We are also coming up with a taxi aggregator policy which will enable more taxis on road," Kejriwal said at the event in Chhatrasal stadium. "Taxi aggregators tried to take advantage of people's misery. They hiked the prices 6-7 times. I called a taxi operator. He said we do it in 400-500 cities across the world. To this, I said you cannot do it in Delhi. You cannot run your writ in Delhi. You have to follow our law. For the first time they had to stop the surge pricing and come down on normal pricing. No government dared to do it. The next day we impounded some 150 cabs," Kejriwal said. By Premji

Juries have awarded tens of millions of dollars to ovarian cancer victims, twice in the past three months, who has blamed Johnson & Johnson talcum powder for their illness. A St Louis jury on Monday ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $55 million to a South Dakota survivor of the disease. In February this year, another St Louis jury has awarded $72 million to relatives of an Alabama woman who died of ovarian cancer. Some case studies have indicated that women who regularly use talc on their genital area face up to a 40 per cent higher risk of developing ovarian cancer. Attorney Jim Onder said Johnson & Johnson's marketing targeted overweight women, blacks and Hispanics, "knowing that those groups were most at-risk for talc-related ovarian cancer," he said. "It's horrible." "Unfortunately, the jury's decision goes against 30 years of studies by medical experts around the world that continue to support the safety of cosmetic talc," Johnson & Johnson spokeswoman Carol Goodrich said in a statement. "I will never use talc again. It's definitely concerning to me," Teri Brickey, forewoman of the jury, 45, told The Associated Press. "I think it's a potential health hazard for some women - a small percentage, but it is a percentage." By Premji
