The composition of Infosys' U.S. workforce is too lopsided -- overwhelmingly South Asian -- to be an accident, allege the plaintiffs in a discrimination lawsuit.

The plaintiffs, four IT workers from around the U.S., brought their discrimination lawsuit against the India-based IT services giant in 2013. This week, they filed a motion seeking class-action certification from 2009, and say the potential pool of plaintiffs may be as large as 125,000.
Neumark wrote that "the share of South Asian workers in Infosys' United States-based workforce, when compared to the relevant labor market, is 301.17 standard deviations higher, and the statistical likelihood that this disparity is due to chance -- as opposed to a systematic difference in hiring favoring one group over the other -- is less than 0.0000001%, or less than 1 in 1 billion."

    Like I said - good luck enforcing a verbal contract. He said, she said, blah blah blah - how many lawyers are going to take a case like that, without charging far more than the dispute is even worth? That's the kind of case only an idiot would go to court for. "Your honor, dude owes me $150, and I'm going to need that money to pay toward the ten thousand my lawyer is charging!"
