22 laid off US techies claim TCS replaced them with Indian H1-B visa holders

A TCS representative said the allegations are 'meritless and misleading'


A group of Americans have accused their former employer, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), of replacing them with Indian staff on H1-B visas, said a report.

At least 22 Americans have filed complaints with the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) against the Indian tech giant, reported The Wall Street Journal.

The laid off US citizens include White, Asian and Hispanic Americans aged in the range of 40s and 60s and many if them are graduated in MBA or other advanced degrees.

The complainants claimed that TCS targeted them on the basis of their age and race and even went on to allege that TCS gave "preferential treatment" to H1-B visa-holders from India.

Responding to the claims, a TCS representative told WSJ that the allegations are "meritless and misleading". TCS has "a strong record of being an equal opportunity employer in the US, acting with integrity in its operations," added the spokesperson.
