im wrking with a big mnc in kolkata..it an ITES company. I am working as a consultant for the last 1.2 years. I have an experience of 7+ years.
My workplace was pretty cool until an incident happened 10 days back. 3 months a new team leader was appointed for our team. This person otherwise is very arrogant and often used slangs on the floor..however i didnt raise any voice. on 24th sep there was an issue where an email clarification was required from our end, whereby the TL wasnt satisfied. He then came suddnly and shouted in front of everyone and terming me and my colleague as an asshole to begin with in public. We politely asked him not to use this word, but he cntinued stating that we come from a cowshed and we have cowdungs in our head. We quielty listened and gave our arguement for the email issue which was later issued.
Since I couldnt take it...i took a leave the next day and came day after...i had by then decided to shoot an email to the HR stating the issue. On wednesday i sent the email and on wed eve the tl called for a team meeting and pointed us out in frn of our team and projected the emails on projector. We again felt insulted and sent a second email on thrsdy....to this the HR responded and told us hat they r looking into it and will wait till 2nd oct since the operations manager was on a leave. we waited till 2nd and in the meantime had a word with our ops manager/operations HR on fone and they asked us to wait. The ops manager came back and had a word with everyone. Surprisingly on 28th sep a group of individuals (who are very dear frnds/colleagues of my team leader) had shot an email againts us stating that we had abused him while these people tried to make us understand that these issues happen on floor (me and my colleague were just shocked since we didnt even take a break a together on 28th sep and didnt even have a word with these set of individuals....and we were keeping to ourselves as instructed by the HR). Now what can we do since a new story is being concocted which is a COMPLETE LIE. The ops manager now says it will be under investigation by the HR....
How can i proceed legally on this matter since i feel I have been harassed badly and being harassed just because im keeping silent.
