Weeks after disclosing that Wipro fired hundreds of employees caught moonlighting, its chairman Rishad Premji made yet another stunning disclosure on a public platform.

He said the software services firm fired one of its top 20 leaders ten minutes after he was found to have committed a “huge integrity violation.” Premji was speaking at the Nasscom Product Conclave in Bengaluru on October 19.

“We made that decision in 10 minutes. It was an important role that this person ran for the organisation but when the times are tough, and you have to make those tough calls,” he said.

He did not elaborate on whether this violation was also related to moonlighting or something else. Premji also did not take questions from the press on the sidelines of the event.
