Tata America International Corporation (TAIC), a subsidiary of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), has been slapped a class action suit by a current employee, Gopi Vedachalam, alleging that the company was ‘‘enriching itself’’ by requiring workers to hand over their Federal and State tax refunds to the company.
The complaint also seeks compensation and damages for current and former employees who were not paid what they were promised and who were required to forfeit vacation pay that they had earned, sources revealed.
The law offices of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP filed the nationwide class action lawsuit in US District Court in San Francisco against TAIC, and its parent corporations TCS and Tata Sons, Ltd.
Tata is one of India’s largest business conglomerates, with revenues last fiscal year in excess of $17 billion. The proposed class consists of thousands of current non-US citizen employees of Tata working in the US, plus former Tata employees dating back to 2000. Tata has faced a barrage of complaints over the years from anti-immigration companies who allege that the company brings workers at low wages, and takes away jobs from Americans.
Asked if employees would hesitate to come forward fearing retaliation and subsequent transfer back to India, Tindall says that under California law, if there is retaliation it would be considered unlawful, and employees, even if they are transferred back to India, would be entitled to damages, if they are awarded.
