Corrective action notice


Ground Zero
Content Developer - E- Business Department

Sub: Corrective Action Notice

Dear Mr. Ground Zero,

This is to bring to your notice that your way of working at xyz company has been found short of expectations on many occasions, in many ways. While you have been frequently advised to mend your behaviour and change your style of working many a time verbally, I take this opportunity to formally write to you to apprise you of matters of great concern to all of us at xyz company. I would like you to know that we value your participation in the company's endeavour for excellence and leadership in its business and this Corrective Action Notice is a step for us to align your abilities with the best interests of our company. I would appreciate if you could take note of the following points and improve upon them:

1. Insubordination and Rude Behaviour: Ever since your started working with us, I have verbally advised you at least three times to reflect respectful behaviour for your team-mates. Whenever we were aiming to finish a project on its deadline, you have always refused to stay back even a little beyond office hours to help accomplish the project. This is despite the fact that your appointment letter issued to you clearly indicates that the company requires you to stay back if the nature of work demands that in the reasonable interests of the company. Consequent to your actions and non-cooperative attitude, the important work was always left to be attended to by other team mates or your superiors. Maintaining the precedence of your rude behaviour, on Saturday, the 25th February 2006, you spoke rudely to your superiors in front of the whole team of workers. Your statement that I, your reporting boss, speak useless things for 13 out of 15 minutes and your warning to me for not trying to speak English in front of you, was wholly in bad taste and spirit. You blatantly refused to stay even a little longer beyond office hours, disregarding the fact that the team as a whole was responsible to complete the project on that date. You walked out of the team-meeting at 4.30 pm without reason. Later the same day, when we tried to help you absorb the importance of work ethics in tripartite meeting involving your Mentor, Mr. Praveen Joshi, once again your rude behaviour and non-cooperative attitude was evident and you even tried to walk out of the meeting that was called for a reconciliation of situation.

2. Inflexibility: Although you were appointed to work as a Content Writer and Developer, you have ignored the suggestions of senior management to improve your style of writing. At times, you put up defensive affront saying that you can write only with your personal preferences and you would not change that in any way. Consequently, a good volume of content prepared by you for our web portal was found wanting in many respects and additional manpower is now being used to create content, although that should have been done by you.

3. Learning new skills and taking initiative: Sustained efforts by the company to impart you training on additional job skills have not been met with your desire to work well. Although you were selected by Great Thinking for an important business contract of xyz company, your performance was found seriously wanting that led to your rejection by the project owners. One of their numerous complaints was that you were not comfortable with American Standard English. Acknowledgement of your inflexibility and lack of initiative in adapting to evolving needs of the work environment by a third party has not left a good impression about your performance.

4. Spending time on browsing unnecessary websites: Time and again, you have been advised to not do your personal literary writing work using company resources and time. Just yesterday, you were found composing a multi-page word document that was your personal work and not related to the work allocated to you. Please note that repetitive behaviour to this effect cannot be tolerated any more.

Ground Zero, in the interest of good working atmosphere and your achieving desired levels of productivity, you are hereby informed that the company is now giving you ten more days (starting 1st of March 2006) to show marked improvement in your performance. Formal proceedings for your termination from the services of xyz company may be initiated after the expiry of such period.

We trust you will utilize this opportunity to your fullest advantage and improve your performance.

Out of prick of conscience!!

There is something interesting going on in the most happening place in India, the XXX University. Allow me to begin the story from the middle: On one March evening this year, residents of Sutlej hostel, one of the 18-20 hostels in the university, blocked the traffic inside the university. The reason: the long standing demands for basic amenities in the hostel and the timely maintenance of its electrical appliances and wooden furniture have been consistently ignored by the university administration. There shouldn't have been anything interesting in this apparently apolitical demonstration by a group of university students if it had nothing to do with the agitations that rock the U campus today. But destiny had it different.

Further to the demonstration and road blockade, an enquiry committee was constituted to look into the matter and to book the students behind the 'anti-social' act. From a demonstration in which scores of students participated, the enquiry committee, without any rhyme or reason, picked up one PhD student and imposed on him a fine of Rs. 5000/-. A number of tables and benches in the mess hall were used for the blockade. The punishing authority conveniently ignored the fact that a single individual cannot carry these pieces of furniture without being helped by others. And how about the enquiry committee report? Has anyone seen the report? Has it been tabled before any forum? No one knows. Later, when some friends of Suhail, the student who was fined, and other supporters of the cause approached the administration to make them understand the illogicality of the punishment order, the administration pacified them by making the hostel president also party to the punishment. The hostel president was fined a lesser amount, Rs. 1000/-. Suhail, who has been in the forefront of many agitations, and hence, a target of JNU administration, apologized. But, contrary to University tradition, the administration hesitated to reduce the fine amount.

Interestingly, members of University Students' Union (**USU) and University Teachers' Association (**UTA), the organizations which now fight against the rustication/out-of-bounds awarded to their cronies, were conspicuously absent from the scene. When Suhail yielded to the autocratic ways of the university administration, remitting the fine which he managed to collect from his well-wishers and supporters, the first part of the story ends. Suhail withdrew to his room in Sutlej to complete his PhD thesis which is to be submitted in a few months' time (It is well known to everyone around him that the administration targeted Suhail taking advantage of the crucial period which he passes through at present, and that the former knows very well that any student in such a situation will neither have the time nor the resources to organize a mass students' movement against it.).

But while remitting the fine imposed on him, which was not reduced even after his apology, Suhail did not forget to prick the conscience of the administration through a statement in his affidavit. And this refers to an incident in which the university Registrar Avais Ahmad was illegaly confined for six hours by a group of students demanding the intervention of University administration on a series of issues. It is assumed that the revolutionary model confinement, in which a few girl students played the lead role, gave a boost to the students' struggle for MPhil/PhD scholarships, minimum wages for hired construction and mess workers, abolition of caste discrimination and functionalization of Gender Sensitization Committee Against Sexual Harassment or GSCASH, as it is generally called.

How is it justified that when **USU, taking responsibility to the confinement incident, apologized with the university administration, the administration was ready to show leniency towards the activists, whereas the apology of a student who was falsely implicated in an equally genuine issue fell on deaf ears, was the question raised by Suhail. What is the rationality that links together both the judgments - the judgment in the illegal confinement case and traffic blockade case? This was an eye-opener for the **U administration, it needs to be inferred now. Mulling over Suhail's affidavit, the university administration was forced to revoke its decision on the confinement case which it had dropped earlier in a university general body meeting. So far so good. Personally, I feel that rustication and out of bounds are too harsh a punishment. But, in the same token, justice should not show partiality and should not be prone to bias.

Employment Fraud Issue Boiling

An first hand account of a victim of an employment fraud in our district in which a missionary priest also is alleged to have involved.

A Priest Spoiled and Spoiling Thousands of People Life

A Franciscan Priest “Fr. Thomas Kulathingal“and his partner “P.A. Joseph“(A Politician and Real Estate Businessman) Spoiled and spoiling thousand of people life by offering U.K. Visas in India - Kerala.

The Priest “Fr.Thomas Kulathingal” (Native from Kalpatta, Idukki – (in Kerala - India) has said to the people that he got lot of U.K. Visas based on charity and he got a sub agency from U.K.. He collected money from thousands of the people 75,000/- bugs to 5, 00,000/- bugs Indian Currency from each of them in December 2005 and also 25,000/- bugs Indian currency for Insurance as first Installment. Most of the People have given this money from bank loans and heavy interest.

Then after two months the priest appointed as partner P.A Joseph (Native from Kumali – Idukki (in Kerala - India) and told to all people if anybody wants to go U.K. give the money to his partner and he will assist you.

Then after two months he told the U.K. Main Agency will come to interview these people in next month first week. When next arrived, he told the interview must be contempt last of that month. When last of that month come, he told there is problem going on in U.K. because of bombard, and so the agency people have come from U.K. they have gone back to U.K. because of this incident. And he said the U.K. Embassy has temporary stopped Visa Stamping.

In this situation some people asked for their money, passport and documents back. But priest has refused to give and said to them this will be alright and they can go U.K with in next month last. The few guys have come for leave from gulf countries, they also asked him for their passport and documents to go back and retain their current job. But priest has refused to give their documents and he made promise that they can go next month and said to resign that job and cancel that visa. The other peoples those who got the chances for other jobs they asked their passport and documents, then also he stand as an interrupter and gave promises.

When next month arrived, the Priest has said - they have no license for recruiting people to U.K. At last he got license after two to Four months. And then priest and his partner made “Annual Celebration”.
In the Annual Celebration priest has said now they need only one month, i.e. next month first week the visa stamping will be done and last of the that month the people can join in their job.At this time the news has come about the priest in the news papers.

But next month nothing has happened, it has going like promises and promises As Month’s first week and Last week, which never ends.

After this, the priest and his partner have shown an Agreement, of “Assany Abroad Consultancy U.K.” to the people.

But it has got so many spelling mistakes. (The true is the agreement made by Priest and His partner)

Address has given like this,

Assany Abroad Consultancy

Old Brompton Road,
London sw 7 300 U.K. Phone No. 0044 - 1753692184

And this contract has given to priest partner – P.A. Joseph in the following address.

But the visa dealings are done in another office with the people, situated at “Kochi” (in Kerala – India.)

M/s Thekkady Manpower Service Pvt Ltd,

His Native and Priest Native are Idukki.

After showing this agreement the priest said next month there will be Medical. There after the
interview will be there with “Assany Abroad Consultancy” and they will select each person and they can
go last of that month.
Medical has done well in following diagnostic centre after two three months,

Poimblassery Building,
Kannamthodth lane, Phone No. +91 484 3246090
Valajambalam, E mail:
Kochi – 682 016,
Kerala – India.

The Priest said there is only medical and the interview has cancelled. When the people questioned about that the priest answered, when the interview started the whole people could not go. But nobody has gone. The priest again collected from people 8,500/- bugs Indian currency by saying for Visa Stamping and made promise for first and last of next month as continuing.

People enquired about “Assany Abroad Consultancy” in U.K. but nobody has got the correct details about the agency. People questioned to priest about this - then priest said, the agreement was his creation, there is no agency like “Assany Abroad Consultancy” in U.K., and he continued, the agency has said to him
do not give the real address of their because people will disturb them.

When Next month Arrived the priest said, the Visa Stamping has been Over and but he have to get one letter, that has to be sign by the UK embassy. The employee - he has to sign, he has gone for a leave (For 25-12-2006 Christmas and 01-01-2007 New Year), And he promised from 3rd January 2007 on words he will give all stamped visas and from 5th January on words will start to go UK.

When 3rd January 2007 has come the priest said the Stamping has not done (How Much Lie He said), The U.K. Embassy has enquired about letter of “Indian Labor Council”, after getting this letter the stamping will start. For that purpose Priest Partner P.A. Joseph has gone from Madras to Delhi for collecting that.

Now Two Years Left…………
To date there is nothing happened and Nobody has gone to U.K. ……………

Still he saying the people can go next month………
The priest was the superior of the “Paduva Seminary”, when he started this dirty game,
His Partner P.A. Joseph bought too many plots with this money for his business purpose.

Franciscan Friars Convent,
Paduva Seminary,
Trichur D.T, Kerala
India. Phone No:- +91 480 2786422

The priest is doing very cruel to the people. Now people become at stage of suicide.
Because they have no job, the other chances they got that also lose and no resources for their future life.

“One day the Bank will seal their houses and plots, which they earned in their life by hard work“

They Believing in GOD, that’s why they believed the Priest and his words.

What you can do for these

Poor Christian People…………?



Can WE call him A Priest……???

It is very shame for Christianity……!!!
