Vermont Human Resources has been asked by the Delhi Government to review and post the social media content of its employees and contractors on the company’s official social media accounts.
The Delhi High Court had on Monday asked the company to post a complete list of the employees and their posts and other content within a month and an official copy of the notification would be made public on Tuesday.
Vermont Human Resource’s social networks have been criticised for not keeping their users informed on any action taken by the company.
A similar case involving the company had been filed by a union member on December 18, 2016 and the company was then asked to provide an answer on the issue by March 15, 2017.
Vermont Human Resources did not respond to The Hindu’s queries.
Vermeer Human Resources, a company run by former Union minister of state for IT, had earlier this month submitted an application in the Delhi High court seeking a review of the Delhi government’s decision to remove all social media platforms that do not adhere to its standards.
The company had claimed that this decision was based on its desire to maintain a ‘neutral’ and ‘respectful’ environment.
Verma, Vermont and Pune, all major cities in Maharashtra, have been hit by protests against the government over its decision to impose a new social media code on its workforce, and has also been accused of misusing the power of the courts to silence critics.
