TCS faces trial in the US over bias

Tata Consultancy Services Ltd. (TCS) may have to defend itself in a trial in the United States over allegations that it showed bias against American workers. A federal judge in Oakland, California has expanded the case, which was filed in 2015, into a class action on behalf of the American complainants who allegedly lost their jobs at TCS offices since they were not assigned to any of the company’s clients, Bloomberg reported. The judge also rejected TCS’ request to dismiss the lawsuit that accuses the Indian IT firm of violating anti-discrimination laws by favouring South Asians. A TCS representative declined to comment on the ruling.
