  • TCS Agrees To Pay $29.8 Mn To Settle Wage Dispute 0 comments
    Mar 1, 2013 1:21 AM

    In order to settle a wage dispute with its 2 former employees in California, the country's IT services giant, Tata Consultancy Services (NYSE:TCS) has agreed to pay USD 29.8 million, said the media reports.

    The complaint against the Tata Group's company was filed by two non-US employees namely, Gopi Vedachalam and Kangana Beri, who were sent by the company from India to the US to work on projects.

    On February 14, 2006, Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein filed a nationwide class-action lawsuit against Tata stating that the group has unjustly enriched itself by requiring all of its non-US citizen employees to endorse and sign over their federal and state tax refund checks to the group and by taking unauthorized deductions from employee's paychecks.

    Later in June 2006 and April 2007, Tata America International Corporation and its parent corporations, TCS and Tata Sons, filed a petition for dismissing the case requesting that the case should be arbitrated in India rather than the US. However, Lieff Cabraser opposed this motion.

    Subsequently, in April 2012, US District Court Judge Claudia Wilken issued an order that granted class-action status to the suit that accused Tata Sons and TCS of breaching employment contracts and violation of the California Labour Code
