Infosys Settles Harassment Lawsuit with US Indian Ex Employee
Bangalore: Infosys has settled a harassment suit filed in a US court by its former employee, Satya Dev Tripuraneni. He had 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.
Tripuraneni had alleged 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.
Through mediation, the lawsuit has been withdrawn and Infosys said in a statement, “The Dev Tripuraneni lawsuit filed against the company has been withdrawn following successful mediation of the dispute. We can confirm that we reached an amicable settlement, without any admission of liability. This settlement enables us to avoid the costs and distraction associated with protracted litigation’’, as reported by Reuters.
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.
