Another lawsuit alleging wage discrimination in NY state. This one is a doozy.

The complaint is 7 pages - easy to read.

Another example of H1 slavery. They will probably play it off saying he was a consultant at a different position with different benefit plan or some such BS.

Those bastards will probably claim that they were employees of "Accenture India" and not "Accenture USA" and therefore subject to "Accenture India" rules/pay/benefits etc.

Hopefully New York state law has been written in a manner that this bullshit doesn't matter - for eg if you work for the same ultimate controlling entity, then there must be no discrimination - but let us see.

Personally hope those bastards get fined - punitively i.e. some multiple of their profit margin from this business for the last 10 years.

The employee's lawyer is Matthew J Blit (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_J._Blit) who seems pretty high profile and probably knows what he is doing.

Hope he nails Accenture's ass to a wall.
