Return from sabbatical or quit: AI to staff


Five years after it had announced a sabbatical scheme for its staff to reduce the bulging salary bill, national air carrier Air India has asked the employees who had opted for the scheme to either return to work or quit, say sources.

The scheme allowed them to take a minimum of two years and a maximum of five years off the job with the airline.“The airline recently issued a circular to its employees on sabbatical, asking them to join back duty or put in their papers as they have completed the sabbatical period,” Air India sources told PTI.
