Gurugram Woman’s Threat To Jump Off Building After Being Fired Creates Panic Amongst Employers

The news of a woman threatening to jump off her office building’s terrace in Gurugram after being fired from her job has created panic amongst the employers.

The question as to what steps should be taken if any such threat is received by the management is doing rounds in the Association of Industries & Institutions.

On May 24, 2019, the woman working at a private consultancy firm located in Gurugram Sector 18, went to the office terrace, stood on the edge and threatened to jump off the building.

Despite her colleagues consoling her, she refused to come off the edge. When the police arrived at the scene, the woman started threatening that she would kill herself.

It was only after her company administration promised not to fire her that she finally decided to come off the edge.

In a circular dated May 29, 2019, issued by Association of Industries & Institutions to its members, S.K. Sharma, Hony. General Secretary said that they have asked the editorial board of Labour Law Report as to what precaution are to be taken in case the above type of threat is received?

To this, the editorial board of Labour Law Report said: “First of all, the employer should report to the police about such a threat for committing suicide and keep the copy of the report duly signed and stamped by police authority in its possession. Additionally, there are some NGOs who provide counselling in such types of matters and their professional services should be availed for counselling the concerned employee. This will be a supplementary evidence for defence if any untoward incident takes place.”
