News Summary: US Judge dismisses harassment case
CASE DISMISSED: An Alabama judge has dismissed a whistleblower harassment case against Indian outsourcing giant Infosys Technologies despite ongoing investigations of alleged U.S. visa fraud that arose from the complaint.
THE BACKGROUND: Infosys consultant Jack Palmer claimed he was harassed after calling attention to what he believed was systemic U.S. visa fraud at Infosys. Palmer alleged that Infosys misused short-term work visas to send Indian employees to the U.S. for permanent work.
THE COMPANY SAYS: Infosys denies the charges of visa fraud. The judgment does not address those allegations, which are being investigated by the Department of Homeland Security and a federal grand jury.
