Whistleblower Palmer Loses Case Against Infosys Technologies

Must read

Alabama/Bangalore – A federal judge in Alabama on August 20 threw out a lawsuit filed by an American employee of Infosys Technologies Limited, one of the leading outsourcing companies from India, as the employee had claimed harassment after he had raised the issue of visa fraud by the company management.

Finding no basis behind the charges filed by Jack “Jay” Palmer, Jr., US District Judge Myron H. Thompson wrote: “Judgment is entered in favor of defendants Infosys Technologies Limited Incorporated and Infosys Limited and against plaintiff Jack “Jay” Palmer, Jr., with plaintiff Palmer taking nothing by his complaint.”

“It is further ordered that costs are taxed against plaintiff Palmer, for which execution may issue,” Judge Thompson added in his order.

Infosys immediately issued a statement saying, “Today’s decision confirms what we have been saying from the beginning: Mr. Palmer’s claims of retaliation were completely unfounded. This is a company built on core values that include leadership by example, integrity and transparency. Those values always have and will continue to shape the way we do business with our clients and, without exception, the way we treat our people. We are pleased to consider this matter officially closed.”

Clarifying that the visa accusation case is still under investigation, Judge Thompson noted that his decision was limited to employment issues and was not connected with Palmer’s visa accusations.

Commenting on the news, Nirupama Rao, Indian Ambassador to the US, tweeted, “Judge rules in favor of Infosys,” quoting a media report. (IATNS)
