I am working in a BPO company, where I was asked a favor to help the business. The management want to come up with a certain tool that the agents will be able use and help them lower one of the metric called Average Handling Time (AHT). To make the long story short, they asked me to come up with that tool. At first they want me to create an auto notes for the agents using microsoft excel which is impossible because of computer restrictions of the company. Since i am an IT graduate i know an easy way to do it which is using HTML. I was able to finish the tool and they liked and love it. It was implemented and rolled out to all agents which they are all using now. First, i am not paid for doing this considering i have used a programming language, it took almost a month for me to finish it and had to make different versions as well. Then all of a sudden another department in the same conpany, copied the project i created, they edited it (though obviously its mine as my name still appears at the copyright foot note). They never asked permission from me which makes me feel bad, and felt like they steal my codes.


I am really hoping for a help. Please help me. What should i do for my rights?

You cannot claim the copyright of the software or tool or whatever because in the very first place the idea did not originally come from you. Second, you are an employee. Whatever the employer tells you do will be reflected to them, whether you were paid for that or not. Thus, the copyright belongs to the company. They can do anything about it.

That's quite not fair. They just asked what they want to happen but the idea of making the HTML came from me.

They ask you to do it that is in however way you can. Point is, you were able to create the idea bec. you were told to do so. The origin of the idea is not you.
