5. Harassment at Infosys

Satya Dev Tripuraneni, a US citizen and former employee of Infosys in the U.S., has filed a lawsuit in a federal court of the Northern District of California on August 2nd claiming harassment following his complaint against visa-fraud in the company, NDTV said in a report.

Tripuraneni alleges that even though he informed about the misuse of B1 visas to the Infosys management, no action was taken; instead he was subjected to harassment. He was an account manager with the US branch of Infosys and has worked for the firm for five years.

According to the lawsuit, Infosys also cheated its clients by billing them fraudulently for employees brought from India and they also took extra money from the clients for taxes.

The case came as big blow to Infosys, India's second largest software services provider, as it was the second lawsuit faced by the company.

Infosys finally settled the harassment suit through mediation and the company was successful in clearing itself of any wrongdoing.
