“A man named Upendra Bhadauria (a citizen of India) filed a complaint in the federal courts, saying that he had been discriminated against on the grounds of race and gender.
Bhadauria sued his former employer, outsourcing firm HCL America, a subsidiary of HCL Technologies, which, according to Google, has its headquarters in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, where its president is C. Vijayakumar.
According to both a 2016 article in Information Week, and a CIS blog post entitled “The H-1B Program Facilitates Blatant Racial Discrimination”, in 2015 HCL had a H-1B work force that was 99.4 percent Indian. (This is rather cosmopolitan when compared to Cognizant’s 99.6 percent Indian hiring rate.) Such firms are equally well known for their preference for male employees. So, despite HCL’s, shall we say, preference, for Indian male employees, Bhadauria and his perhaps obtuse lawyers sued that he was discriminated against on the grounds of his sex and nationality”.
