Infosys' U.S. workforce is mostly South Asian and no accident, plaintiffs allege

Plaintiffs seek class-action status for a lawsuit alleging Infosys discriminates

It's expected that Infosys will file a response to the motion. A ruling by a judge on the class-certification motion isn't expected until next year.

The lawsuit last year survived an effort by Infosys to dismiss it.

In the ruling to allow the case to proceed, U.S. District Court Judge Pamela Pepper wrote, in part, "that the plaintiffs' allegations are sufficient to state claims that the defendants intentionally discriminated against them because of the plaintiff's' race, and the complaint is clear that the plaintiffs regard their race as distinct from the 'South Asian race' that the defendants allegedly favor."

There were some 50 exhibits filed in this case, including one from a former Infosys recruiter who said, in a declaration, that in conference calls "many of the highly qualified American candidates we presented were being rejected in favor of Indian candidates."
