White ex-employee at Infosys in Plano files suit, claims company favored workers from India

Infosys, the India-based information technology consulting firm with an office in Plano, is facing yet another reverse discrimination lawsuit asserting that it creates a hostile work environment for workers who are not from India or South Asia.

Erin Green,

A man, oddly enough

a former supervisor at Infosys, filed suit this week in the Eastern District of Texas in Sherman, alleging that he and black and white staffers on his team were denied raises and promotions, and that other “non-South Asian” workers were berated by South Asian company officials.

Green, of Frisco, is white and rose to the rank of “head of global immigration” while working in the company’s Plano office.

I, for one, welcome our new immigrant overlords. I’d like to remind them that as a trusted corporate executive, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground coding caves.

He was terminated in June of 2016, ostensibly for violating Infosys’ “code of conduct by using his work computer for personal use a number of years earlier.” …

Presumably, everybody can be fired for that.

“Infosys maintains [more than 20,000] 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).” …

“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.

Green’s 22-page suit outlines the career path of an employee who rose rapidly while working for a white supervisor, and whose career tanked after he was assigned to a supervisor who was of “the South Asian race and Indian national origin.”

Whoever heard of South Asians pushing out everybody else in any American workplace?
