PhonePe sues ex-employees for burning QR codes
New Delhi, August 1 (SocialNews.XYZ) Digital payments provider PhonePe has filed a lawsuit against its former employees for allegedly burning its QR codes in Greater Noida on July 28.
While some of the employees responsible for the act had joined Paytm earlier this year, sources revealed that the incident was the result of a personal grudge between them and their former employer, and had nothing to do with the leading digital payments company Paytm.
Paytm also clarified that it had no role in the incident and added that the matter involved Phonepe and its former employees.
In a statement, the company condemned the incident and said it had already suspended the employees.
“This matter is between PhonePe and its ex-employees. We condemn the act committed by these rogue employees, who have already been suspended from the company pending a detailed investigation,” Paytm said.
“We do not tolerate any act of misconduct and always adhere to the highest standards of work ethics. Paytm pioneered QR code payments in the country and is very proud to contribute significantly to the growth of the ‘Indian digital ecosystem,’ he added. .
