Lawsuit: Company Racism Prefers South Asians

Written by Joe Scudder

A white ex-employee is suing Infosys for an alleged policy of company racism in favoring minorities over whites.

Is company racism something that only minorities are allowed to complain about? And what if the company is based in a foreign country and is accused of favoring the ethnicity of that county? A fired white employed is suing India-based Infosys, claiming their office in Plano, Texas, discriminates against whites and blacks.

The Dallas Morning News reports, “White ex-employee at Infosys in Plano files suit, claims company favored workers from India.”

“Infosys maintains roughly 200,000 employees working in the United States,” Green’s suit said. While less than 5 percent of the U. S. population is of the South Asian race and national origin, roughly 93 percent to 94 percent of Infosys’s United States workforce “is of the South Asian national origin, (primarily Indian).” 

“This disproportionately South Asian and Indian workforce, by race and national origin, is a result of Infosys’s intentional employment discrimination against individuals who are not South Asian, including discrimination in the hiring, promotion, compensation and termination of individuals,” the suit said.

“Infosys has gone to great lengths to obtain its primarily South Asian workforce in the U. S., in particular by utilizing professional H-1B and L-1 work visas to bring South Asians (primarily Indians) into the United States to work in information technology (“IT”) consulting roles,” according to the suit. 

Data from a previous suit, referenced in Green’s suit, “illustrates the overwhelming dis-proportionate percentage of non-Asians being involuntarily terminated and not given promotions,” the suit said.
