Ex-employee withdraws lawsuit against Infosys after settlement
Bangalore: Infosys Friday said its former US employee Satya Dev Tripuraneni has withdrawn his lawsuit against the company following "successful mediation".
Tripuraneni had reportedly filed a lawsuit in the Federal Court for the Northern District of California on August 2 accusing Infosys of harassing him after he blowed the whistle on the alleged abuse of US visa rules by the company.
"The Dev Tripuraneni lawsuit filed against the company has been withdrawn following successful mediation of the dispute", the Bangalore-headquartered firm said in a statement Friday.
"We can confirm that we reached an amicable settlement, without any admission of liability. This settlement enables us to avoid the costs and distraction associated with protracted litigation", it said.
No other details of the settlement were disclosed.
On August 20, Infosys had said it prevailed in its defence of a lawsuit filed by one of its employees, Jack "Jay" Palmer.
A US court had dismissed the whistle-blower harassment charges against Indian IT major Infosys filed by Palmer as no basis to support any of the allegations were found.
