April 14, 2015, San Francisco, CA  – Kotchen & Low LLP and co-counsel filed a federal class action lawsuit against Tata Consultancy Services, Ltd. (“Tata”) today. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of a proposed class of non-South Asian individuals who Tata did not hire and/or who faced an adverse employment action once hired by Tata (e.g., termination, demotion, etc.). The lawsuit alleges Tata engages in a systematic pattern and practice of discrimination against individuals who are not South Asian (or of Indian, Nepalese, or Bangledeshi national origin) in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Civil Rights Act of 1866. According to the Complaint, as a result of Tata’s discrimination, its United States-based workforce is approximately 95% South Asian, primarily Indian. The lawsuit seeks to end Tata’s discriminatory practices.
